How many days is TCI Training?
The length varies depending on the specific course and physical interventions being taught.
TCI7 and TCI for Schools require a minimum of 20 hours for participants completing only the prevention and de-escalation techniques. With physical intervention techniques, the course ranges from 22 to 28 hours. This allows suitable time for all activities and participant assessments.
TCI for Families is designed to be held across 7 sessions of 3.5 hours each.
Can I get trained in just the TCI Physical Skills?
TCI is designed as a Crisis Intervention prevention and de-escalation system. The physical skills are not designed to stand-alone aside from the rest of the training. Staff must be trained in the complete TCI system in order to be certified to use TCI physical skills, which include restraints.
Where Is TCI Being Practiced?
Worldwide, trainers are located throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Bermuda, Vietnam, and the Republic of Korea.
