Robins Air Force Base's Sexual Assault Response Coordinator team is working hard to get all base employees trained on sexual assault prevention.

As of July 31, about 11,000 workers have received the Respect the Red Line training, leaving roughly 12,000 untrained, as the base's Sept. 30 deadline approaches.

Lisa Matney, a Robins SARC, said while there's no official notification sent from those in the SARC program, some supervisors are asking their organizations' training managers to notify workers who've yet to complete training.

"That information would have to come from each area's leadership," she said. "People are aware if they attended the training. They can also go into the Advanced Distributed Learning Service and look at their transcript as well."

Some "Respect the Red Line" training sessions have been cancelled due to lack of training facility availability. 

Matney said in those instances, cancellation notifications were sent to base organizations' workflow boxes and a cancellation notice was posted on the base theater's door.

If a person's training has been cancelled, Matney said the individual needs to notify his or her training manager or the supervisor and reschedule.
