Description

CIT (Crisis Intervention Training) officers will learn about a variety of mental disorders and other disabilities, visit mental health facilities, and learn the concepts of crisis intervention while adhering to officer safety practice and policy. Officers are able to de-escalate potentially violent situations and ensure the safety and diversion of the mental health consumer to a treatment center. CIT trains law enforcement officers to become more adept at dealing with mental health consumers, the developmentally disabled and individuals in crisis. CIT is useful in domestic violence cases and in contacts with youth, elderly citizens, and people of diverse backgrounds.

College Application Process

This program is presented through the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium of Community Colleges (SBRPSTC), which includes Gavilan College, Monterey Peninsula College, Ohlone College, Hartnell College, Lake Tahoe Community College, Mission College, College of San Mateo, and Cabrillo College.

Only courses and programs presented for college credit will be funded, transcripted and certified through one of the above accredited institutions.

Funds generated through this process offset the costs of each course, thereby reducing student fees for the student/agency and allowing us to present more courses. Consequently, we require all students taking one of our college-based courses to apply to the designated college using OpenCCC, the online college application system by which the majority of community colleges collects registration and transcription information.

Refer to the College of Record, listed on this flyer, then click here for step-by-step instructions for that particular college.

Students are also required to complete South Bay registration form, to include your OpenCCC and your applicable college ID numbers. Registration forms must be completed and returned to sbrpstc@theacademy.ca.gov at least 30 days in advance of the course start date in order to hold your reservation in the class.*Failure to complete the college application process may result in the cancellation of your reservation or additional course fees.
