After hearing a need from districts we added a CPI Initial training on November 4, 2022.  Register for this training on the East Central BOCES website prior to October 21, 2022, to allow sufficient time to complete the virtual portion of the training. If we do not have 6 participants signed up for the course by October 21, 2022, the class may be canceled.

The intent and philosophy of CPI are to provide the best care, welfare, safety, and security at any given moment to the individuals in your charge even in violent moments. 

Registration: Please register online at Please make sure your email address is correct or one that you check often as a portion of the class will be completed online. The link will be sent to this email address from CPI Learning (no affiliation with ECBOCES).  The last day to register for each class is 2 weeks prior to the in-person class.  No online module links will be sent out after this date.

Fee for EC BOCES districts: Initial Certification - $43 Recertification - $38 

Location: All trainings are in a blended format with a portion completed online and finishing training at the East Central BOCES Training Room.  Online module completion is required to participate in the in-person training.
