SOMB Approved Provider Trainings

Bimonthly Live Trainings


General Information

SOMB Approved Provider lunch and learn trainings are web-based one-hour bimonthly trainings over the lunch hour hosted by the Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) and the Division of Criminal Justice. They are intended to assist approved treatment providers, evaluators, and polygraph examiners under the purview of the SOMB with the implementation of the Standards and provide technical assistance on specific case challenges. The SOMB staff will often partner with other subject matter experts in the field for these discussions and appreciates the collaboration. 

This is an opportunity for our approved providers to:

  • Be updated as to recent events at the Board meeting.
  • Obtain the most current information regarding changes to the Standards and Guidelines.
  • Discuss implementation of those Standards and Guidelines in your community and within your teams.
  • To identify challenges to your work and learn from peers how they are managing similar challenges.
  • Obtain technical assistance from the SOMB staff.

Approved providers who attend a live lunch and learn training can receive a training credit by participating in a post-training survey. If you miss the live training session, please view the information below regarding the SOMB Provider Hub.
