Are you looking to enhance your career as an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professional? At Unitek EMT, we provide comprehensive EMS courses that will equip participants with cutting-edge techniques. Our courses will also provide participants with the knowledge they’ll need for certification exams. Taught by veteran EMS professionals, our active-learning classes will include expert lectures and hands-on training to enrich your current skillset.
Today, we’d like to take a closer look at our Nonviolent Intervention Continuing Education (NICE) course.
Nonviolent Intervention Continuing Education
The NICE course places a strong emphasis on prevention. Considered a core training program, the NICE course will equip participants with strategies to defuse erratic, hostile, or violent behavior. It can be tough to think rationally during moments of chaos, but the NICE course will teach you how to respond appropriately in chaotic situations.
Upon completing this course, you will know how to…
+ Reduce the risk of injury to staff and patient.
+ Comply with legislative mandates.
+ Meet the standard for patient and caregiver safety.
+ Improve staff capability of responding to a crisis event.
+ Reduce exposure to liability.
+ Promote care, welfare, safety, and security.
The course lasts for about 8 hours, which is only 1-2 days! All of our NICE instructors are certified by the Crisis Prevention Institute. Those who successfully complete the course will receive 8 hours of Continuing Education as well as a CPI Blue Card™ in Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training.
To give you a better idea of what you’ll learn, we have broken down the course into the following outline:
