The MI·CIS training incorporates innovative instructional methodology proven effective in delivering high quality educational programs. The tiered-approach course design results in an integrated discipline-specific module using instructional technology to optimize educational quality, target audience delivery, and cost effectiveness.
|Awareness||This course is designed to enhance the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of emergency responders to effectively intervene for those experiencing behavioral crisis situations.|
|Operations Phase I||This course is designed to build upon the knowledge, skills, and attitudes developed in the pre-requisite MI-CIS Awareness course and to develop a working knowledge of crisis intervention tactics for all emergency responders in the system of care.|
|Operations Phase II||This course will build upon skills previously taught within the Awareness and Operations Phase I distant learning modules and puts into practice intervention strategies through enhanced reality-based scenario training.
Awareness and Operations Phase I must be completed to attend. See the current training schedule below for dates and enrollment instructions.
|MI-CIS Advanced||This two-day course is designed to sharpen the intervention skills of responding officers by Integrating Communications, Assessment, and Tactics (ICAT) for a Patrol Officer response to crisis situations that do not involve firearms. Training topics include: Critical Decision-making Model, Crisis Recognition, Communicating Tactically, Officer safety and wellness, and scenario-based training. ICAT integrates learned skills with an emphasis on using them in tandem along with the importance of teamwork- using contact-cover skills and focuses specifically on situations involving persons with mental illness or in behavioral crisis to include “suicide-by-cop” situations. A high-impact consumer perspectives panel discussion with an interactive lunch is included in this course. This course also serves as an excellent annual “refresher” option for crisis intervention training. To learn more about the ICAT curriculum click here.
Operations Phase II must be completed to attend. See the current training schedule below for dates and enrollment instructions.
|MI-CIS Train the Trainer Course||This course educates MI-CIS trained personnel to become trainers of the Michigan- Crisis Intervention System.
