R1 Crisis Negotiation School Level One – CDA

September 27, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Course Number: R1  224



The Crisis/Hostage Negotiation Course (Level I/Basic) is a practical introductory course of instruction for newly assigned negotiators or negotiators having a five-years or more lapse in negotiation training. The basic course is the first in a series of three progressive courses. The basic course meets or exceeds most state and federal training requirements for crisis/hostage negotiator certification and is trained in accordance with guidelines established by the National Council of Negotiation Associations. The Crisis/Hostage Negotiation Course (Level I/Basic) is designed to prepare law enforcement and corrections personnel to mitigate threats involving barricaded subjects, suicidal subjects, hostage takers, and others presenting behaviors associated with subject precipitated homicide or suicide-by-cop with special emphasis on the drug-affected subject and those suffering from mental illness or experiencing an emotional or psychological crisis. This course explains the basic premise of crisis negotiation, types of crisis incidents, and terminology as it relates to crisis negotiation. Students will learn the importance of working as a team and the roles of each team member. Students will learn the fundamental requirements of a unified law enforcement response to a crisis incident, including pre-incident planning, the roles of dispatchers and first responders, containment, security, and risk management. Effective communication as a core competency will address the Behavioral Influence Stairway Model, Active Listening Skills (ALS), and the role of rapport and influence as it relates to crisis negotiation. At the heart of a well-managed incident is well-managed information and intelligence. Students will learn how to gather, manage and apply crisis intelligence and information as well as maintain legally sufficient incident documents. Theory and strategy as it relates to crisis negotiation will be explained in depth, including effective negotiator introductions, intervention techniques, bargaining, demands and deadlines, managing the non-responsive subject, using third-party intermediaries and managing an effective resolution.
