Praesidium's Online Abuse Prevention Training

Praesidium's Online Abuse Prevention Training is far more than a check-the-box collection of e-learning courses. Instead, it is a comprehensive system based on learning theory and best practices in adult learning.

At the core of the Praesidium Academy is a continually expanding library of engaging courses, each with clearly defined outcomes. Courses include research-based content, highly interactive multimedia activities, application scenarios, and a content mastery quiz.  

By pairing foundational abuse prevention courses with targeted, industry-specific content, you can provide staff with meaningful training that meets the specific needs of your organization.  

"We found Praesidium's training easy to access and implement. Once our staff began the trainings, we noticed they were initiating discussions and personalizing risk situations to the Clubs."

Steve A. Wurm, President Boys & Girls Clubs of Arlington 


Training conveys your commitment to safety. The right delivery system makes it impactful.

Support Tools

Support tools enhance the short- and long- term effectiveness of the training experience and produce sustainable changes in employee and volunteer behavior.

Action Plans

Each course includes an Action Plan, a printable document that summarizes key learning points and allows learners to jot down reminder notes as they progress through the course. Learners can keep their Action Plans and refer to them any time they need a refresher.

Discussion Guides

A group leader uses the Discussion Guide to encourage participants to share their own experiences with the content and how they can use it on the job. Group discussions can make the entire learning experience more compelling by creating collective support for building safe environments.

Coaching Playbooks

Supervisors receive a high-level summary of the course with learning objectives and things that they can say and do to reinforce application of the content.
