All Trainings are held from 8:30am to 4:00pm
Participants in Mandt System Training learn verbal and physical ways to de-escalate aggressive behaviors.  Other expectations from the course include: 
*Learn how to deal with the crisis cycle
*Improve communication skills
*Learn appropriate physical interaction skills
*Understand liability and legal issues
Basic Level Training is a one-day training designed for those who interact on a daily basis with people who, for the most part, are cooperative.  The importance of de-escalating and interacting with people is promoted. 
Intermediate Level Training is a two-day training designed for those who interact on a daily basis with people who may become uncooperative and or confused.  This training provides interpersonal interaction and physical skills for use in most situations.
Recertification training is to add to the skills base of each participant to make sure there is consistency in the techniques promoted in Basic and Intermediate Trainings.  To recertify Basic Level Training, participants will need to attend day.  Those recertifying Intermediate Level Training will attend the full day.  Certification does need to be renewed annually.
