*With the exception of the first Monday, each day you will have short breaks as well as a one-hour break for lunch.

These can be completed at your convenience, but are required for certification.

NCTI’s Complete Behavior Change system is more than a checklist to work through with your clients, and it’s more than just generic curriculum that could fit any client’s needs. Our evidence-based, need-specific, risk-level based suite of curriculum truly meets your clients at their point of need and gives you the tools you need as well.

Furthermore, you have access to NCTI’s Pre and Post Online Testing system where organizations with Certified Crossroads Facilitators are able to measure their clients’ change in thinking and what areas still need to be addressed. This makes the communication with referring professionals simple and evidence-based.

As part of your training, you are also a Certified Facilitator of Real Colors®; this tool provides the foundation for understanding motivations, recognizing the “why” that fuels behaviors, and building instant rapport between facilitators and clients. Real Colors is the start of each program, and it sets you and your clients up for success.
