CPI - Crisis Prevention and Intervention - is an evidence based and accredited training program provided by the SJBOCES to all member districts as part of a system of tiered support for staff working with students who have challenging behaviors.  The certification training is a full day and is valid for 2 years. Our instructors bring over 20 years of combined experience working with high risk youth and an expertise in schools and clinical mental health.

With a focus on prevention, our core training program equips staff with proven strategies for safely defusing anxious, hostile, or violent behavior at the earliest possible stage.

  • Reduce the risk of injury.
  • Comply with legislative mandates.
  • Meet regulatory/accreditation standards.
  • Improve staff retention.
