CASA of DET volunteers are required to complete a minimum of 12 hours of in-service training each calendar year in order to stay up to date on new information, services, policies and legislation. In-service training credit can be earned through a variety of different delivery methods, including attending workshops, watching videos, and reading articles, and should be related to their role as a CASA volunteer. Be sure to speak to your case supervisor if would like to know if a certain type of training will qualify for credit. Download Guidelines
