The Provincial Violence Prevention Curriculum (PVPC) is currently recognized as the best-practice in violence prevention training for health care workers. Because continuing care is recognized as a high-risk sector for violence against staff, it is important to ensure that all staff be given access to violence prevention training.

This session is a four-day training with the intention of giving you the tools to become a confident PVPC Facilitator. Following these sessions, participants will be expected to teach their own workshops at their own sites. We ask that each site send two participants to a session. This allows for co-facilitator support when teaching sessions.

If you have a passion for people, learning, and teaching, we want to hear from you!

See how your organization can benefit by having your own trained facilitators.

Maintaining Certification

To maintain certification, facilitators must be able to demonstrate their commitment to the program by taking part in at least 40 hours of continuing education over a two-year period,following completion of the train-the-trainer program.

Continuing education hours can be accumulated in the following ways:

  • Facilitating a minimum of four, 8-hour workshops
  • Taking part in training or other professional development (including online or in-person)
  • Delivering peer to peer coaching, safety huddles and new employee orientation, or other types of violence related training

Facilitators will be asked to report on these activities on an annual basis following the train-the-trainer program. As these requirements are met, a SafeCare BC facilitator will issue re-certification.

If you are unsure about the eligibility of your continuing education hours, please contact Mavis Gibson at
