Online Core Advocacy Skills Training

What is OCAST?

Texas CASA created an interactive e-learning course, Online Core Advocacy Skills Training (OCAST), to walk you through everything that happens when a child comes to the attention of CPS. Within the course, there are six modules that take one to two hours each to complete, with a quiz at the end of each module. Participants will receive a brief follow-up survey and will be able to print their grades as proof of completion.


OCAST is recommended for all CASA staff, volunteers and stakeholders. The new CASA College Learning Management System (LMS) includes OCAST as well as new e-learning materials we are developing for both volunteers and program staff and board.
