Welcome to the Cal SAFE Educational Website

The CalSAFE Leadership Council is excited to offer this "always available, always affordable" 40 hour online course for SAFE/SANE practice. This course will be available 24/7, 365 days a year. Costs are set low to cover administrative fees only - $50.00 for CalSAFE members and $150.00 for non-CalSAFE members- but $100.00 will go towards your first year membership! You must be a medical professional (RN, NP, PA, MD) to register for this course- all course registrations and payment will need to be approved.  Refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

This virtual course was made possible through a generous partnership with the University of San Francisco School of Nursing and their SAFERR project funded by a HRSA grant. CalSAFE members and our training partners have all donated their time and talent to produce these training modules. We offer this course to you at a low cost to increase access by victims to qualified sexual assault examiners throughout California.

This course contains innovative, state-of-the-art science based curriculum.  It fulfills the 40-hour requirement for California examiners as well as the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) national SANE-A certification.

We are a work in progress! We would appreciate your thoughtful evaluations after each module as well as on the Post Course Survey as we continue to build our various course offerings. Currently, we only offer the basic SAFE/SANE 40 hour course with one Course Completion Certificate being provided (40 hours CEU BRN credit only). But more will be added!! 

Thank you for participating. Please visit the CalSAFE website for membership information.
