40 Hr Crisis Intervention Training 1850

Monday, July 15, 2019

This course provides the key concepts, safety techniques and communication skills for peace officers to use when they respond to individuals in a serious mental health crisis. It covers the legal aspects of mental health commitments, liability issues, mental disorders, and mental disabilities. In addition, it deals with a variety of developmental disabilities including epilepsy, cerebral palsy and hearing impairments. The former 16-hour Crisis Intervention Training ceased to exist on April 1, 2018. For officers licensed after April 1, 2018, who have not had this new Crisis Intervention Training as part of their BPOC, this is a required course and must be taken within two years of license issuance. For officers who were licensed before April 1, 2018, this is a required course to be completed no later than the second anniversary of the date the officer is licensed or the date an officer applies for an intermediate proficiency certificate, whichever date is earlier.
