This four-day training is the most comprehensive training available today to assist institutions in meeting the complex requirements of Title IX, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs which are a recipient of federal financial assistance as enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in the U.S. Department of Education. The Title IX Coordinator Training and Certification was cosponsored by the National Education for Higher Education Risk Management (NCHERM) and the Association of Title IX Administrators.
