    The Academy is an intensive 5 day class that is held from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm on the first four days and 8:00 am – 3:00 pm on the last day.  The Academy is presented by D. Stafford and Associates.

    This five (5) day training academy is designed to be a comprehensive and intensive training experience. The Academy will include all elements of the Clery Act (which includes the 2008 HEOA security and safety requirements, the requirements of the Violence Against Women Act[VAWA] which became part of the law in 2013, and the class includes changes that were made as a result of the updated Department of Education Clery Act Handbook released in June 2016). This training academy experience will benefit individuals who have not had previous Clery Act training (we start with the basics and work into the advanced concepts) and those who want to enhance their knowledge of the law. The academy also includes a significant amount of training in classifying crimes according to UCR Guidelines. The academy features interactive instruction; group exercises; and use of an electronic testing system to reinforce the concepts learned in each block of instruction. Each attendee is provided with a pre-loaded thumb drive with more than 30 forms and documents that will assist the attendee in developing a system for compliance at their individual institution. The instructors review and explain the purpose and use of each document throughout the 5 days of instruction.  The Academy will also include an overview of the Title IX requirements and the intersections between Title IX and the Clery Act.
