Training Environment Formats & NCITI Certification

                              TRAINING ENVIRONMENT FORMATS

Live Webinar:    Consists of concurrent attendance of a live webinar, while the on-site class is in attendance.  Random pop quizzes and/or attendance check-ins are conducted throughout the day to ensure the persons attending remotely are actually participating and attending the class. 

Local Venue Course:    Attendees are in actual attendance at a local training site.  Attendance is taken at the beginning and end of each day. 

Hybrid Format:     Attendees may opt to attend certain initial days of the training course via the above-described “Live Webinar” format, but then are required to attend final day(s) of training in a Practicum setting, where live interactive exercises, role-playing, group discussions and scenario-based exercises are conducted.   The Hybrid format is designed to aid Participants who, for financial or other personal reasons, may not be able to travel to and from the training site each day of the multiple-day training course. 

Training Conferences:   NCITI is currently planning theme-based, multi-curricular Training Conferences in several key urban locations.  The conferences will consist of various training for all participants, as well as elective break-out workshops and seminars, to be selected by the participant.

(Topics, locations, and dates to be announced).


Certification Courses:     Consist of certain courses within the NCITI Curricula, in which Participants who are Certification Candidates are required to demonstrate knowledge and skill proficiencies via written post-tests, as well as group and/or individual practical testing, which qualitatively assesses the Participants’ skill proficiency.   Certification is usually for a prescribed period of time (typically two years); re-certification is required to ensure that the certified Participant receives updated information, and maintains skill proficiency. 

NCITI Certificates:  Certification may also be granted to individuals who complete a certain number of related courses offered by NCITI, or by submitting proof of prior completion of comparable training courses, alongside NCITI training. 

Train-the-Trainer Courses:  Veteran Practitioners who have worked in the field for a minimum of one year as a Certified Practitioner may be selected to receive NCITI Certification to teach one or more of the NCITI courses. 

Mentor Certification:    Consists of one-on-one evaluation of a Practitioner’s skill and knowledge levels, based upon examination of education, training, and professional experience.  NCITI Directors may elect to certify an individual as either a Practitioner or Trainer using this alternative method. 

Youth Crisis Intervention Lay-Counseling Certification Training:  This 40-hour basic training program is designed to prepare church-based volunteers to participate in youth hotline and mutual aid support hotline programs within their communities and local congregations.  The program is conducted in a Hybrid Training Format, with the first 32 hours being completed via Live Webinar Training, and the final 8 hours (consisting of course review, practical skill practice and testing, and a written final exam).  NOTE:  NCITI is not formally affiliated with those hotlines, but contracts with local churches to facilitate and conduct the training on the churches' behalf.

S.T.R.E.E.T. Volunteer Certification:  This residency program, scheduled to be launched in 2020 or 2021, is part of NCITI's Specialized Techniques in Recovery, Engagement, and Empowerment Training program. Volunteer Trainees pay their own expenses to travel to key urban areas throughout the United States, for a two-week training and internship, focusing on outreach to runaways, thrownaways, child prostitutes, et cetera.  The curriculum consists of daily classes, break time, and nightly visits to target urban areas, to engaged in supervised outreach activities.  The goal of this training is to prepare the participants to return to their own communities to organize their own outreach teams, or to periodically travel to participate in subsequent S.T.R.E.E.T. Training events.
