Crisis Intervention Training

Each CCS staff member and volunteer completes our 65.5-hour Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) as part of their onboarding. CIT is a California Office of Emergency Services approved training that covers the state training requirement for both SA counselors and DV counselors. While it is primarily provided for our staff and volunteers, we save a few spots each session for community partners.

CCS typically offers four CIT sessions throughout the year. The training takes roughly a month to complete and is often scheduled on weekday evenings. For more details about CIT and topics covered, please click the button below. Please note that CIT is currently only be offered virtually.

For prospective volunteers: Please complete a volunteer application, which can be found on our Volunteer page. You will be signed up for the next available CIT upon completion of the volunteer interview process.

For community partners: Please complete our CIT Interest Form to see if this training is a good fit for you. After completing the form, you will be added to an interest list and our Training Manager will email you information about our next training once details are available.
