Details coming soon about 2023 CPI Workshops & Refreshers!
For nearly 10 years, School Services of Montana has provided Non-violent Crisis Prevention & Intervention (CPI) workshops to K-12 educators across the state. The Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® With Advanced Physical Skills program equips staff with the decision-making skills needed to confidently assess and address risk. It combines verbal intervention strategies and restrictive interventions with advanced physical skills for high-risk scenarios such as those that require floor intervention. Our instructor has customized this training specifically for educators who work with K-12 students, and certification is good for 18 months. Click here for additional program benefits, and here for an overview video (1:52).
Any school, public or private, or child-based organization (i.e. SPED co-ops, after school programs, etc) may participate in our CPI program, with discounts available to SSoM members.
We love our CPI hosts! All host districts or organizations receive one FREE registration with a minimum of 10 registrants, plus the convenience of holding the workshop at your location. Workshop dates are coordinated between our office and host administration, based on your availability and our certified CPI instructor's schedule. A minimum of 10 registrants is required for full or refresher workshops, and the maximum is 25. Refresher workshops taken before your certification expires extends that for an additional 18 months.
Ask about our NEW hybrid class options that make it possible to hold 2 workshops in one day!
