Mission Statement

We teach the world that by combining the right skills with dignity and respect, you create well-being throughout the workplace and beyond.

Crisis Prevention Institute Training Department

Competency-based assessment of CPI's Global Professional Instructors begins immediately. CPI uses Korn Ferry's leadership architect system to create a position profile with (but not limited to) competencies in approachability, facilitation dynamics, customer service, content expertise, and content application. Each Instructor brings their own background, education, and skillset to the position, which allows for a unique learner experience.

As CPI is committed to best practices and de-escalation methods that focus on prevention, we ensure the highest quality in our training materials and our training department. We use the Danielson Teaching Effectiveness Framework to assess, coach, and develop team members. This is done through course observations, team meetings, one-to-one coaching sessions, and weekly conversations with their manager. For their professional growth and consistency, Global Professional Instructors also complete a series of annual skill assessments, professional development sessions, and self-guided learning opportunities. All these requirements ensure that CPI program attendees receive the best learner experience from beginning to end. 

Crisis Prevention Institute Policies: 

Learner Privacy and Security Policy

The Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) values the privacy of those who attend our training programs, whether those programs are provided by a Global Professional Instructor, a Certified Instructor, or through a Learning Management System. As such, CPI has in place a specific process to protect the privacy of our learners.
Each learner training record will be restricted from public access. CPI utilizes a standardized and centralized record management system for filing and storing learner training information. This system will assure ease of retrieval, availability and accessibility of the learner training record without sacrificing the confidentiality of the learner training information. All learners will have the ability to obtain a copy of their learner record. Learners may request a copy of their record by completing and signing an authorization/disclosure form.
