CIT...More than just training

2016 CIT COORDINATOR'S CERTIFICATION COURSE

Presented at the 2016 CIT Conference, Chicago, IL

At the April 2016 CIT International Conference the first Certified CIT Coordinator Course was delivered at the Leadership Institute following the Conference in Chicago.  It was developed in response to requests from many CIT International members for such a course.  The development of this 8 hour training was coordinated by board members Suzanne Andriukaitis and Tom von Hemert and contributed to by board members Mike Woody, Sam Cochran, Ron Bruno, Nick Margiotta, Pat Strode, and Kurt Gawrisch.  CIT Researcher Amy Watson, Ph.D. was asked to address the importance of collecting program data and outcome measures.  This was the team which delivered this first Certified CIT Coordinator Course.

This first training was completed by 81 persons including a Deputy Chief of Police, behavioral health providers, advocates, and police officers all with a variety of levels of experience as CIT Coordinators hailing from Canada and states all over the US.  Participants were presented printed Certificates and a lapel pin at the conclusion of the training and also received a flash drive containing resource materials for their future use.  Developed for persons who are serving as CIT Coordinators, the course focuses on the roles and responsibilities of CIT Coordinators as they develop, deliver, and enhance the CIT Program in their own communities. 

Some quotes from attendees:

“First time to have this explained to me, even though I have been involved as a coordinator for several years.  Excellent.”

“Very good reminders of the importance of working as a community.”

“Great ideas that I had not considered, especially involving the community.”

“Great instruction. Triggered a lot of ideas to make our program successful.”

“Our County was focused primarily on training.  I am resurrecting the Steering Committee on Monday!”

“Great suggestions on how to begin collecting and charting data from overlapping systems.”

“Presenters were Wonderful!  Knowledge Great!”

“I wish I had had this training earlier.  This was great!”

“Amazing group of presenters!”

“This certification course was great and NEEDED!”

“This training was wonderful.  I feel more prepared to take our already strong CIT program to a whole new level.  Can’t thank you enough for putting this together.”

“I have been to many trainings.  This was the most “professional” TRAINING.”

“Very thought provoking training.”
