Core Content Training is a two-day training that covers basic crisis counseling skills and services, data collection, and stress management techniques.
Core Content Training is usually held during the first few weeks of the Crisis Counseling Assistance and Training Program (CCP). CCP program managers should also plan to hold this training on an ongoing basis for newly hired crisis counselors.
In special circumstances, some staff may be directed to complete a shorter, online training called “Just in Time” Web-based Training, before they complete in-person Core Content Training.
