The BJA National Training and Technical Assistance Center's (NTTAC) training and technical assistance (TTA) Catalog is a new feature on BJA NTTAC's web site, www.bjatraining.org, for BJA’s TTA providers and BJA NTTAC to promote upcoming webinars and training events to the justice community. The justice community can search the TTA Catalog for resources that meet their needs through the use of various filters (e.g., keyword, location, event type, program area, date). Results can be displayed in a list or as a calendar, and can also be exported into Excel. Take a few minutes to check out the TTA Catalog here.
