For nearly 40 years, CPI has provided crisis prevention and intervention training to help professionals respond to anxious, hostile and violent behavior with safe and effective methods. The Company’s training has been proven to reduce the frequency and impact of incidents resulting from aggressive behavior in the workplace, improve professionals’ confidence in addressing these incidents, help customers comply with regulatory requirements, and create a safer environment for professionals and those under their care.
CPI primarily serves education and healthcare customers and is expanding its reach in behavioral and home health care, as well as other industries with similar behavioral challenges. CPI has expanded internationally over the past several years and generates more than 20% of its sales outside the U.S. today, principally in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
CPI specializes in “train the trainer” programs that teach and certify individuals to instruct staff at their organizations to assess, manage, and safely resolve instances of high-risk, disruptive or aggressive behavior in the workplace. After completing the curriculum, these client employee instructors, known as Certified Instructors (“CIs”), then train others who themselves become certified CPI Blue CardTM holders upon the completion of program.
