Maintain your certification with our latest, most convenient training solutions

To maintain your status as a Certified Instructor, you’re required to attend a Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® (NCI) Virtual Renewal Training facilitated by CPI every two years (your renewal cycle begins on the day of original certification). 

Now offered 100% virtually, this training allows you to safely and conveniently maintain your certification without having to attend an in-person program.

By re-examining course content from the perspective of an active Certified Instructor, a renewal course offers you the opportunity to gain new training insights and develop an even deeper understanding for the program’s core concepts.

All CPI specialized renewals feature online prework, one day of live virtual training, and an online certification exam, and were adapted from core Nonviolent Crisis Intervention training concepts, satisfying your two-year renewal requirement in a way that best fits the needs of your organization and the people you support.
