The NCI™ Specialized Renewal: Autism Spectrum Disorder program teaches Certified Instructors how to customize and adapt Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® 2nd Edition training for staff working with individuals with autism. After successfully completing this renewal program, instructors are qualified to modify their NCI or Verbal Intervention Training classes with techniques learned in the Autism Spectrum Disorder training.
You will also receive 15 blended learning participant packages for Autism Spectrum Disorder when you complete this program.
To accommodate current CDC and state safety guidelines, Autism Spectrum Disorder is available as a virtual training program to make it easy for Certified Instructors to maintain their active certification status and expand their skills.
There are three steps to the virtual Autism Spectrum Disorder program:
Note: During this time of social distancing, virtual training takes place entirely online to ensure the health and safety of our participants and Global Professional Instructors (GPI). To practice your restrictive interventions and have a GPI assess your skills in person, we encourage you to attend a one-day classroom Refresher program at a later date. To register for a Refresher program, find an Instructor Certification Program and choose the one-day Refresher option. As always, there is no charge for active Certified Instructors to attend a live follow-up event.
Pre-Training: Online Curriculum (4-5 hours)
Before your live virtual training begins, you must complete an online curriculum, which includes an introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder and NCI 2nd Edition as well as valuable train-the-trainer review content. You will review course content, dig deeper into CPI modules, and learn important facilitation strategies to maximize your training. You will receive an invitation to complete the online portion of training approximately 10 days before your virtual training event.
Live Virtual Training (1 Day; 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM)
You will attend a live, interactive instruction session led by a Global Professional Instructor (GPI). In the live event you will apply autism principles to the NCI program through a variety of activities, explore workplace scenarios with your peers, and work interactively with a GPI to discuss facilitation strategies. Includes several breaks throughout the day.
Online Certification Exam (1 hour)
To earn your NCI renewal certification and become qualified to teach the Autism Spectrum Disorder content, you must complete and pass the Online Certification Exam. You will receive an email with a link to this exam following the virtual training session.
To register for this program, you must be a Certified Instructor or Business Administrator and sign in to your account.
