Benefits of Safety Intervention Training

Recognise & Respond to Higher Risk Crisis Behaviour

This programme expands upon the Foundation Level course, formerly known as MAPA®, while maintaining an emphasis on preventative skills. All the content, not just the physical skills, is developed further, equipping the instructor with more advanced knowledge.

Learn Advanced Content

Gives participants a greater understanding of key workplace training theory, to ensure the safety intervention training is transferred into your workplace effectively and safely. The programme builds understanding of the principles, techniques and sources of CPI Safety InterventionTM classroom models.

Advanced or Advanced & Emergency?

The Advanced Programme provides participants with additional non-restrictive and restrictive interventions for risk behaviour. This involves expanding decision-making skills and introducing the Brosett Violence Checklist as a key preventative tool.

In addition to the content of the Advanced Programme, Advanced & Emergency has an explicit focus on safety intervention for extreme risk behaviour, where other emergency interventions, such as emergency floor holding, rapid tranquilisation, and seclusion, may be required.
