Specialized Renewals

The Foundation Course is the core of the renewal process, but for organizations facing higher levels of risk, or for those who serve individuals with autism or trauma, specialized options are available.

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