CTRI offers two different 10-day Certificate Programs that can be taken throughout the year by attending our public workshops:

—OR—

Or attend one of our intensive summer certificate programs:
July 22-Aug. 2, 2019 – Certificate in Crisis and Trauma Response
August 12-23, 2019Certificate in Mental Health Counselling Skills

How it Works

Participants interested in receiving a certificate must register for the program. The required workshops must be completed within five years of registering. It will typically take participants 2-3 years to finish the program and, depending on your location, may require travel out of province to complete.

While we offer all core workshops in several major Canadian cities every 12 to 18 months, we make no guarantee that each will be available at a city near you. We reserve the right to cancel workshops due to unforeseen circumstances or under-enrolment.

Certificate Options

The certificates require you to complete both the core workshops and elective workshops:

Certificate in Crisis and Trauma Response

This program provides participants an opportunity to develop a set of competencies to effectively respond to critical incidents.

Core/Mandatory workshops include 5-6 days of training in:

Elective workshops – 4-5 additional days of training chosen from any of our workshops or national events.

Certificate in Mental Health Counselling Skills

This program provides participants an opportunity to develop a set of competencies to effectively support individuals struggling with mental health.

Core/Mandatory workshops include seven days of training in:

Elective workshops – Three additional days of training chosen from any of our workshops or national events.

PLEASE NOTE:
*On-Demand workshops can be applied to the certificate program.  However, most on-demand workshops are 3-4 hours in length.  Thus additional elective workshops (either live or on-demand) will need to be taken to reach the 6 credit hours.

*Webinars cannot be applied to the certificate program
*Workshops taken through other organizations cannot be applied to the certificate program

Registering allows us to track your progress while you work towards the certificate. In addition, we are able to help you choose the elective workshops that are most beneficial to you. We will apply any workshops you have attended within the last five years (proof of participation may be required). Upon registration, please contact us at [email protected] if you have retroactive attendance you would like applied towards your certificate.

As the costs of our one, two and three-day workshops are different, the total cost of the certificate program varies depending on which elective courses you choose. The costs for one-day workshops are $209 (early rate) and $235 (regular rate); for two-day workshops, the costs are $399 (early rate) and $445 (regular rate); three-day workshops are $595 (early rate) and $685 (regular rate).
