Course 1 - Crisis Response Training

Disaster Relief Certification to Become a Level 1 CRI Responder | taught by Sean, Mary, Tracey and Chuck

Course description

CRI Academy is the online extension of Crisis Response International’s disaster relief and crisis response training and certification program. Our vision is to train and mobilize people just like you to crisis situations around the world to bring God's love and mercy where it's most needed.

Course 1 is designed to impart the basic knowledge, values and skills an individual needs to become a CRI Responder. Course 1 includes topics such as basic disaster chaplaincy skills, crisis ministry, disaster first-aid, personal preparedness, deployment protocol and much more. Most of all, you will learn how to meet the urgent practical needs through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Completing Course 1 in CRI academy qualifies you to become a CRI Responder, and as such, you are eligible to deploy with us to disasters and crisis situations domestic and abroad.

Regardless of if or how often you deploy with CRI, this online Academy will help you be much better equipped to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in the midst of crisis and disaster anywhere you are.

CRI Academy online courses are designed for individual use only. For information about video seminars for churches or use of CRI Academy for a small group please email criacademy@criout.com.


How it works

Participation in this course requires watching videos, taking notes and completing questions to advance forward. You will need to complete all videos and answer all questions throughout each chapter. To proceed from one chapter to the next, click on the green button in the bottom right corner. Not every video has corresponding questions, but most do. You’ll need to correctly answer 80% of the questions to earn a passing grade. If you answer a question incorrectly, just continue by clicking the green NEXT button and you will have an opportunity to re-answer the question at the end of the quiz if needed. When you see the green check mark next to the corresponding chapter in your navigation menu (located on the left-hand side of the screen), you’ll know you’ve completed it successfully.

The course takes about 16 hours to complete; however, you can work through the course at your own pace! At the end of the course, you will be asked to fill out a brief form in order to create your own personal responder profile in our Responder Level System (if you have not already done so). This will keep track of your online and / or live training events as well as deployments, other achievements so that you are adequately credentialed and receive all CRI Responder benefits and deployment notifications, and updated badges.

Great course!

by FREDERICK Mullens
Would recommend for everyone!

Most Challenging and Amazing Course I've Ever Taken

by Sandra D Spencer
This course has been the most challenging, but amazing course I have ever taken. I was stretched, pushed to the limit and have walked away with a greater understanding of God's desire to work in us and through us and also a hunger for more training. Anyone interested in being a part of the end-time harvest should take this first step in becoming a front line responder in the midst of crisis. Five stars just doesn't do it justice. My hat is off to all the team leaders who put this together. Thank you, Sean, Mary, Tracy, Chuck, David and Nino.

Holy Spirit led curriculum!

In my opinion, all topics are very well thought out and explained.

by Cate Muegge
It would be nice if there were print outs for every section so I can put the whole class in a binder and review it that way. Overall, the teachers were excellent in their presentations and I learned many practical applications. This class was well thought through. Thank you for making this available. Cate Muegge

Two Thumbs Way Up!

by Chanee Delaney
This online course is packed full of vital information - some reminders of things I had learned before, some new or updated information, and thought provoking information that challenged me to dig deeper. I appreciate the variety of topics that not only provide essentials for hands on ministry, but also spiritual essentials for being apart of the Great Global Harvest! With the convenience and ease of the online videos and quizzes, I was able to work through the material at my own pace, pausing and replaying sections as needed, allowing me to fully grasp concepts. I am looking forward to all that God is doing through future CRI deployments and additional trainings.

Filled in so many gaps...answered so many questions!

by JerryAnn Berry
Thank you for this course. I would find my mind forming a question and then the next section would answer it! Since I have experience in the medical field, there was much I already knew in those sections but apply it in the field is very different from hospital nursing. I know I still have much to learn! Can't wait!

So thankful....

by Beverly (Rozier) Featherstone
I am so thankful that through the teachers and staff at CRI, I have been afforded the opportunity to get this training online. The training is presented in a clear and concise manner. I LOVED Mary's downloadable notes. The only thing I can say (that might make for a smoother progression of the online study), would be if the different topics ie .Preparedness, Hand of God , etc. had been presented consecutively together. The skipping around, back and forth between subjects was a wee bit disconcerting. Otherwise.....it was exemplary.

by Lisa Moseley
Not clear what these 2 review title, review text categories mean. I think this course is one of the finest educational adventures with very practical application I`ve taken. I am so grateful for the work you all put into producing Course 1 and that I am now qualified to deploy. Thank you, LORD, for CRI and may you lead and guide many more folks to take the academy courses to get ready to respond to reap the harvest. Amen!
