Static-99R is an empirically derived actuarial risk assessment tool designed to predict sexual recidivism in adult males charged or convicted of sexual offenses (Hanson & Thornton, 1999, 2000; Helmus, Thornton, Hanson, & Babchishin, 2011, 2012). The tool’s 10 items utilize criminal history, victim characteristics, and relationship history. It is extensively used in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and many European nations.

What does training involve?

Experiential Learning

Instead of sitting back and listening to Dr. Brankley talk, not unlike an audiobook, your experience will be like a boot camp. Training is filled with activities to engage you in learning.


Case Studies

Learning will occur primarily through the completion of case studies. Five are used through the training day and 15 more are given for on-your-own practice. Struggling with these cases and subsequent discussion better mirror real life.

On-Demand Videos

Background content has now been segmented and transformed into brief on-demand training video. Many of which are exclusive to this training.

“Training Binder”

Welcome to your [virtual] binder–a vestige of a bygone era where interactions were face-to-face and you could ride the trolley for a nickel. Being something of a traditionalist, I still use the “binder” structure to organize your training materials. Click each tab to get a preview of what you will get after registering.

Section 0 - Pre-Training Videos

Foundational knowledge is the first part of any training. It is also the most boring to sit through. As a novel solution, I have converted the foundational knowledge for Static-99R into a series of 5-10 minute videos that you can watch at your leisure prior to training. You are expected to finish viewing these videos, as we will only spend about 30 minutes reviewing these concepts and allowing for questions. Some videos are explicitly labelled private, meaning they are only for paid participants.

Section 2 - Training Slides (Posted after training)

The training slides exist to support the training experience, not the reverse---with the training experience occurring so you can take notes on the slides. I recognize this is the preferred learning method for some, but I invite you to try another approach. It has been the opinion of the majority of my trainees that they are not needed in advance to have a successful training.

Section 3 - Training Cases & Scoring Forms

The five training cases used throughout the day are found here. Print them off prior to training as it will be easier to score them by hand, while interacting with the group through your computer.

Section 4 - Training Cases Answers

Posted after training, you will find detailed explanations for all training cases used throughout the day.

Section 5 - Static-99R Coding Manual (2017)

This is the single most important document provided to you in training. I recommend printing it off prior to training, and taking it to an office supply or printing store to get it bound. The document is rarely updated and used each time you score Static-99R.

Section 6 - Coding Materials

Here you will find a link to a page filled with blank copies of materials routinely used to score Static-99R.

Section 7 - Static-99R Evaluator Workbook (2021)

The evaluator workbook is used to guide your interpretation of Static-99R scores and communicating your findings with a wider audience.

Section 8 - Practice Cases & Additional Resources

Clicking this section of the binder will take you to a whole new page filled with further practice cases, research articles mentioned during training, and even a crossword!

Section 9 - Training Evaluation

At the end of the day you will be given a link to complete a three minute survey on the training. These are invaluable as a source of guidance for improving the training.


How many would retake training?

What people have to say…s

“I would 100% attend another training hosted by Andrew. The content was interesting and the presentation style was stellar.”
Static-99R Trainee

“Probably the best risk assessment training I’ve attended”
Static-99R Trainee

“It kept my attention. With it being a virtual training, I was concerned about how much my attention might wander throughout the day, as this can be a challenge when learning in virtual environments. Andrew made the material interesting and kept participants engaged throughout the whole training session. I particularly enjoyed how many opportunities there were to actively participate with the material.”
Static-99R Trainee

Thank you so much for the personableness of the training. I often have problems with maintaining attention but it was very engaging and my internal distractions were minimal. I would really love to be informed of future trainings
Static-99R Trainee

I really enjoyed the cases and collectively working on them and dissecting them. It really helped apply the manual’s information and prepare us for the complications that we will face in our future work.”
Static-99R Trainee

“I thought his beard was majestic!”
[Probably Dr. Brankley]
