The Crisis Prevention Institute’s (CPI) Enhanced Nonviolent Crisis Intervention certification program is designed to provide participants with the knowledge required to respond early and effectively, allowing the staff member to prevent or defuse a behavioral escalation. As a last resort, participants will also learn and practice the essential skills needed to safely manage dangerous behavior within the school setting. It is recommended that schools have a small team (3-5 staff members) trained per site. NOTE: Participants must be able to physically perform the CPI Personal Safety Techniques and attend the entire training to be properly certified. Proper attire and closed toed non-slip shoes (i.e. tennis shoes) should be worn to ensure the safety of self and others.
