Renew Your CPI Certification

Certified Instructors must attend renewal training every two years to maintain their certification. Our renewal process sharpens your confidence and skills, through refreshed scenarios and networking with your peers to learn from their unique experiences.

Maintain Your Certification and Skills

To build and maintain staff skills in de-escalation and crisis prevention, training must be an ongoing process. Renewing your CPI certification every two years allows you to uphold your Certified Instructor status and ensures you are providing your organization with the most updated techniques and resources.

By following these best practices, you’re helping your organization achieve and sustain its skill development goals for you and your staff.

Certified Instructors

To help gauge proficiency and prevent training drift, we require Certified Instructors to attend a program facilitated by CPI every two years.

This ensures your success in instructing staff on any restrictive and non-restrictive intervention skills, empowering them and instilling confidence in their ability to address all levels of risk behavior. And a team of empowered staff means greater support for your organization.

Your Trained Staff

Your organization’s policy should determine how frequently staff need to be re-trained. We recommend that Certified Instructors conduct refresher training for staff at least once every 6-12 months, and in accordance with CPI’s recommended practices for content and program length.
