START National Training Series

Due to the ever-changing status of COVID-19, all in person training opportunities are now being offered online. The safety and needs of the people we support, our staff, and you are our top priority at this time. Stay safe, stay healthy.


This annual, highly popular, supplemental training series is designed to provide innovative and topic-focused online training to START program members and their local community partners. Trainings from this series are released once a month to the START Network (typically on the 3rd Friday of each month) from September to April. These online trainings are free for participants and are facilitated by START program members in centralized locations within their service region so that all participants can learn as a group.

Participants can earn 1 or 2 Social Work CEs for viewing a training, participating in a post-viewing discussion facilitated by a member of the NY START team and completing a post-viewing evaluation.
