Advanced Training Survey

button01aCIT International is developing a list of suggested advanced training topics available to CIT program training coordinators and, when possible, resources to assist in developing and/or delivering that training.

To that end, the Board is seeking input whether your program has offered advanced CIT training topics, and if so, information about that training. Please help us help all programs by answering a few quick questions. For the purposes of this survey, “advanced training” is defined as anything that was offered following your core, week-long CIT training – including both new topics and a review and/or an expansion of topics that were addressed in the core training.     Click on button or this link  to take survey.

CIT International is a non-profit membership organization whose primary purpose is to facilitate understanding, development and implementation of Crisis Intervention Team CIT programs throughout the United States and in other nations worldwide in order to promote and support collaborative efforts to create and sustain more effective interactions among law enforcement, mental health care providers, individuals with mental illness, their families and communities and also to reduce the stigma of mental illness.

CIT International works to accomplish this purpose by raising public and stakeholder awareness through education and outreach, establishing and disseminating recommended standards for developing, implementing and sustaining crisis intervention programs, providing assistance to communities interested in developing CIT programs, supporting research, improving public health and safety, evaluation of CIT programs and partnering with CIT programs in various localities to hold annual International CIT Conferences.
