Foundational Crisis Response Training

Any administrator could be called upon to assist in a crisis, no matter what administrative position. This course prepares you for just that.

Recommended Material

Crisis Resource Manual

The Crisis Resource Manual is your “go to” guide for critical decisions and actions on crisis day. Content which is crucial on crisis day is in the front, making for quick access and ease of use when crisis strikes. The back of the book contains material helpful in planning for crisis response.

Training Manual

We highly recommend that this be used with the Crisis Resource Manual. Each chapter covers a different content area, and some chapters have exercises designed to help participants become more aware of their own issues from past experiences.
