With budgets shrinking every year and turnover rates on the rise becoming a master instructor allows you to replenish the instructors at your facility, when you most need them. The MI certificate will save your organization money by not having to send all instructors to off-site training.
Important: The reason we can make master instructors in the SafeClinch Training System is because of the video package offered by SafeClinch. This is the way the program presentation works......
1. After you have attended the MI class you will be emailed the slide presentation for the verbal de-escalation portion of the program. In addition, you will given a login/password for your online access to the videos.
2. At the first class you will receive your Instructors manual that has everything you need to start teaching your first class. Your manual includes all verbal de-escalation material and physical techniques. The manual provides you with a brief description and pictures of each technique.
Master Instructor Requirements:
It is not required that a person has been trained in the SafeClinch Training System to become a master instructor, but it is helpful. It is recommended that each facility have two MI's...for team teaching, etc...but we realize many facilities will only have one (1) MI...and that is fine.
There is no charge if the MI trains end users at their organizations; there is only a charge if the MI wishes to train other instructors.
The SafeClinch Training System is a master instructor course that is taught in a three day "blended" training session. In person course hours will be 8:00am to 4:30pm each day. Training manuals; video online access and instructor certificates (valid for three years) will be provided. The certificates will include the name of master instructor and the name of the organization that master instructor is assigned to. Participants need to wear comfortable clothing for mat work.
