The Child Protection Training Center (CPTC) at the George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics provides exceptional training for child protection workers both locally and nationally. The CPTC is unique to the southeast region and one of only four centers of its kind
The CPTC offers a rare opportunity for multi-disciplinary team members to hone their skills by following real world scenarios from intake to prosecution. Comprised of both a mock house and a mock court room, the CPTC presents its participants with hands on opportunities
to improve their skills in detection, reporting and responding. Trainings provided by similar centers, have proven to improve competence and confidence levels of participants, which leads to improved prevention, investigations and prosecutions, as well as lower employee
Through its partnerships nationally with the Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center and locally with the Child Advocacy Studies Program at USC Upstate, the CPTC will ensure it is always offering the most current trainings to benefit children, those who work in the child
protection field and ultimately the community as a whole.
