Course Objectives:

Designed for professionals (teachers, administrators), paraprofessionals, and volunteers who work within the Educational System. The courses in this stream will enhance the skills required for activities with individuals or groups who have been directly or indirectly exposed to a school crisis or traumatic event. No special requirements or degrees are necessary for this entry-level non-counselling training stream. Successful completion of SCHOOL CRISIS RESPONSE course materials, tests and examination is required to receive the Certificate of Completion.

With the changing spirit of our times, school boards have been charged with the responsibility of developing comprehensive school crisis response plans. These plans typically focus on the structure of crisis response—in the aftermath of a tragedy. For example, they address such issues as who will serve as members of a school crisis response team? What are the specific roles of team members? And, how will information be shared with the school family?

Although these structured plans have been developed and implemented by our school districts, little attention has been given to the process of school crisis response. For example, once students have been assembled in a lounge, library or other counseling venue, what is done to help them? What is the goal of early intervention? Who is truly prepared to address emergent psychological needs?

Those who successfully complete the full SCHOOL CRISIS RESPONSE CERTIFICATE training curriculum are entitled to use the TITC-ST designation (which stands for Traumatology Institute Training Curriculum, School Traumatologist).

Students will be able to apply for Certification through our internationally recognized training partners the National Center for Crisis Management & American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress

How the Courses Work

We recommend that course materials online are completed together with the manual provided online. All the assignments and learning in the School Crisis Response course relies on an integration of materials from the downloadable materials found within the program page after register and course purchase.

This process of study provides a chance to weave knowledge into a cohesive system for appropriate post-trauma intervention.

All of the courses offer opportunities for learning through online exercises, assignments and unit quizzes but many are simply for your learning only and are not submitted for grading. Certification from the NCCM – AAETS will be reviewed and considered for certification by the National Center for Crisis Management staff. These submissions, along with the successful completion of core curriculum, will satisfy the requirements of the program.

This course requires the successful completion of a Final Quiz. Your grade must be higher than 80% to pass the quiz. When the course is successfully completed a Certificate of Completion will be available on your student course area for immediate download and printing on the E-learning site. You will be able to print your own Certificate of Completion from any computer linked to a printer.

Our certification is provided through Traumatology Institute but you can also apply for additional international certification through the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress (AAETS) and the National Center for Crisis Management in the U.S. our training partner in this program. They both acknowledge our training and provide advanced certification.
