RTT Information

The USA Response Team Training will be taking place at the ILC Center in Richmond, VA. Orientation will be on Sunday, April 28 from 4 to 6pm. The RTT will then run Monday, April 29 at 8am through Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 5pm. The Annual Conference will follow, running from the evening of May 1 – May 4. You may stay for both events, but will need to register separately for the Annual Conference.

The Response Team Training (RTT) provides three days of intensive modular training on how to respond to child safety reports. It is designed to specifically equip response team members with the knowledge and skills to respond to a report of harm to a child within your organization. This specialized course focuses on response team protocols for organizations who have an established Child Safety program and are able to respond to any reports of concern. It is not a general Child Safety Training program, although it will give your organization an overview of what is ultimately needed.  Attendees should be members of your organization who will be part of your response team, either as a team member, management/leadership of a response or member care staff who will support those directly involved.


The Response Team Training is reserved for CSPN Member organizations. Mission agencies and international schools are encouraged to send 2-4 people to the same RTT event. CSPN Members must be approved by their organization’s gatekeeper to attend. Please plan to attend every RTT session over all three days of the training.
