NCDC – The National Center for DWI Courts (NCDC) has announced that it will host four 3.5-day Foundational Trainings throughout the country, one of which will take place in Duluth, MN, August 11-14. Other locations include Athens, GA, El Paso, TX, and Billings, MT.

DWI Court Foundational Training is designed for courts not yet operating a DWI court program, teams that have had significant staff changes, or teams that have never attended an NCDC training before. This training uses the 10 Guiding Principles for DWI Courts and the National Association of Drug Court Professionals’ Best Practice Standards to design an effective program for treating repeat DWI offenders. Your team will benefit from one-on-one interaction with our experts while developing an action plan to maximize your resources and integrate best practices into your DWI court program.

The mission of NCDC is to provide training and assistance for implementing new DWI court programs and improving existing programs. Thanks to the support of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NCDC is able to assist DWI courts by providing evidence-based resources and best practices that will improve outcomes for program participants and improve both public health and public safety for our communities.

All Foundational Training takes place at one of four NCDC Academy Courts. In addition to hosting training, these exemplary courts receive staff from other jurisdictions for site visits, play a significant role in participating in research and media, and serve as a national model for DWI courts. Click here to learn more about each Academy Court and get access to court materials.
