DART courses

DART has developed a number of courses tailored to specific organizational needs. They include WorkSmart courses (Level 1, De-escalation, and Level 4), DateSmart courses (1-hour, 3-hour), Fight Back 101 (a 2-hour personal safety class), and a badge program for Girl Scouts. Because of COVID-19, DART offers only 2 online courses: a 2-hour WorkSmart De-escalation training and a 2-hour DateSmart training.

DART’s goals in every WorkSmart training session are to enhance employee confidence, ensure a safer workplace environment, and positively impact employee retention. DateSmart’s goals are to offer young people the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to avoid becoming either targets or perpetrators of dating violence and to develop healthy interpersonal relationships.

Participants gain a fundamental understanding of the power of verbal de-escalation techniques and situational awareness.

7th and 8th-grade students learn about healthy relationships and dating violence prevention.
