Our Training Approach

We offer a training framework — train-the-trainer — that turns employees into in-house behaviour or crisis prevention leads. These leads are your CPI Certified Instructors who then teach other members of your organisation.

Train-the-Trainer Approach

Following a train-the-trainer model means consistency of delivery and allows you to integrate existing organisational policies and standards.
