CIT 40-hour Curriculum Train-the-Trainer

CIT International provides a train-the-trainer course on a national CIT 40-hour curriculum.  Learn from master instructors on how to conduct the week-long training as well as receive the complete curriculum including course materials, presentations, instructor's guide and everything needed to design and conduct the course in your community for your law enforcement officers.

The Course

The curriculum train-the-trainer course is a 4-day in-person course of instruction. The course is appropriate for all CIT coordinators who may be responsible or co-responsible for conducting a 40-hour week long CIT training for law enforcement. Class size will be limited to no more than 20 students.  A block of hotel rooms have been negotiated at the training hotel at a reduced price.  

Attendees will be required to demonstrate efficiency at being able to deliver portions of the material to successfully complete this course of instruction.  Upon successful completion of the course, the attendee will be certified as a CIT coordinator (see below) and receive the benefits associated with that certification as well as receive a certificate of completion for the train-the-trainer course and a USB drive containing all of the materials required to conduct a CIT 40-hour training.

Pre-course Requirement

CIT is more than just training.  Therefore, a prerequisite for attendance at this course is to be certified as a CIT Coordinator.  If you are already certified, you can sign up for the curriculum train-the-trainer course at the reduced price. If you are not already certified, you will need to sign up for the combined Coordinator Certification and curriculum train-the-trainer course.  We will either get you into an existing online CIT Coordinator Certification Course prior to the train-the-trainer or we will conduct a private online course just for the attendees of the curriculum train-the-trainer.
