Clearwater, FL, March 1, 2023 — Prevent.Zone by AliveTek, Inc, a leader in eLearning development, in partnership with Hazing Prevention Network, announce the release of a
new program to help education professionals become stronger advocates to help end hazing:
The Hazing Prevention Advocate Certification program. This training program is entirely online and will include signature talks, assignments, and discussion forums where cohorts can network and share ideas and experiences. The course requires approximately 10-20 hours to complete, depending on the professional’s level of experience as a hazing prevention advocate. Each week’s discussions and assignments build up to a Final Assessment.

Prevent.Zone developed Hazing Prevention: It’s Everyone’s Responsibility™, an evidence-based online education program that includes Hazing Prevention 101™, in 2014 in partnership with the Hazing Prevention Network™. Since then, more than 80 colleges, universities, and (inter)national organizations throughout North America have utilized this suite of eLearning courses. The Hazing Prevention Advocate Certification allows hazing prevention professionals to expand their hazing prevention strategies, including building and improving advocacy and prevention plans.

“We are pleased to expand our hazing prevention education efforts with the Hazing Prevention Advocate Certification,” said Sandy Mills-Alford, President and CEO of AliveTek, Inc. “Our desire to end hazing was the catalyst for creating Prevent.Zone, which today offers online education programs across a variety of areas in addition to hazing prevention, including alcohol awareness and sexual violence prevention. “Adding this online professional development program to our award-winning hazing prevention suite of courses for college and high school students is one way we are furthering our shared mission with the Hazing Prevention Network to make hazing a thing of the past.”

“Working with Prevent.Zone, we have been empowering people to recognize and prevent hazing,” says Hazing Prevention Network Executive Director Todd Shelton. “Together we are offering the Hazing Prevention Advocate Certification to provide education for hazing prevention advocates to help strengthen their voices in their organizations and communities and raise awareness about the dangers of hazing and ways it can be prevented.”
