NOVA Crisis Response Team (CRT) training has nearly thirty years (since 1986) of evidence-informed and field-tested best practices as a crisis management utility that includes trauma mitigation and education protocols. With over ten thousand trained in North America and internationally, NOVA CRT training is an effective tool that can be instantly scaled-up for mass-casualty critical incidents.
NOVA’s Basic CRT training is twenty-four hours. A forty-hour CRT version offers the same basic core but is expanded skill-building and scenario application.
NOVA’s Advanced CRT is twenty-four hours and builds upon the essential CRT protocols with current best practices and in a ‘refresher’ training context.
NOVA’s Trainer of Trainers is a qualification process for an individual to become a NOVA-approved Basic CRT Trainer.
For school districts seeking a crisis response protocol, NOVA’s Basic Community Crisis Response Team training provides extensive equipping for trauma mitigation and education, consistent with the Department of Education Guide for Developing High Quality School Emergency Plans, specifically pages 52-53.
