Randy Boardman

Senior Training Advisor With CPI since 2001

“When you’re asking what to do when someone is being disruptive, you must also ask what’s going on when the person is being cooperative. The answers to the first may be found when you answer the second.”

Randolph M. Boardman, Ed.D. is the Senior Training Advisor for CPI. Dr. Boardman is also a Senior Trainer of Life Space Crisis Intervention and a National Trainer of Time To Teach!® for Classroom Management and Differentiated Instruction.

Before joining CPI, Randy was a teacher and a principal for 27 years in elementary, middle, and secondary schools. He also has experience in residential care working with adults with developmental delays.

Since joining CPI in 2001, Randy has worked with legislative issues related to restraint and seclusion, has hired and supervised many of our Global Professional Instructors, and spent eight years developing course content including our Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® advanced courses, the Dementia Capable Care program, and many eResources for Instructors such as our family guides for supporting loved ones with dementia. He has also served as our company media liaison.

Currently Randy is back to training on a weekly basis and says, “I’m having a blast—I love making differences and helping Instructors help those in their care.”

Favorite CPI Memory

Beyond the countless people I have had in my training over the past 17 years, my greatest memory at CPI is helping to develop the three family guides for supporting those with dementia.         Chris Ebell and I collaborated on developing these family-friendly resources.
