Request Training and Technical Assistance

Training and technical assistance opportunities are available to all member states. National trainers, appointed by the Training, Education, & Public Relations Committee, facilitate training for the Commission.

Due to limited resources available, and to ensure fair and equitable treatment for each member state, requests for on-site training, specialized curriculum, or technical assistance must be made in accordance with the ICJ Administrative Policy 07-2009: Training and Technical Assistance

Commissioners may submit a Training and Technical Assistance Request to the National Office for review and consideration.

Types of Training and Technical Assistance 


Online Training (Live or On-Demand)

The Commission offers a variety of live and self-paced online media which can accommodate virtually all individuals with an internet browser.

Live trainings dates are announced in the Commission's newsletters and on the Commission's calendar. 

The TalentLMS platform contains dozens of self-paced training modules for completion at your convenience. Learn more about the TalentLMS On-Demand training modules. 

On-Site Training

Each member state is responsible for providing Interstate Compact training to Field Officers, Attorneys, Judges, State Council members, and any other interested personnel.  The National Office may assist in these efforts by providing a National Trainer to facilitate on-site trainings or workshops at the request of a state’s Commissioner.

ICJ also recognizes that states are unique in their administrative structure and own internal procedures. If your ICJ Office would like to develop its own training sessions, the ICJ National Office can assist the ICJ State Offices in this endeavor. 

Specialized Curriculum

In the event that your training needs exceed the current resources available, you may request that the National Office develop a specialized curriculum.

Reporting Training Data to the National Office

Has your ICJ Office completed a state-specific training? Submit your training data to the ICJ National Office by using the Training Report Form.
