 Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) Training Level II
July 9 - 10, 2019
Palm Beach State College

Now that your team is up and running, you must ensure that it is running at its optimal effectiveness. This two-day best practice course will give your team the insights it needs to go to the next level. The course is designed to provide participants with in-depth knowledge related to team operations, group dynamics, case interventions, and violence risk assessment. Note that BIT Level I training is not required to attend BIT Level II training. The learning goals for BIT Level II training are as follows:
  • Understand the NaBITA Standards for Behavioral Intervention Teams.
  • Be able to self-assess their own BIT based on the NaBITA Standards and the Core Q10
  • Effectively lead a BIT, including guiding the operations, group dynamics, and team supervision.
  • Deploy effective interventions for cases referred to the BIT, utilizing a range of intervention techniques.
  • Conduct violence risk assessments based on structured professional judgement, using the SIVRA-35
BIT Level II training is offered immediately prior to the AFC's 2019 Campus Safety Symposium. Both programs are hosted by Palm Beach State College, at the Palm Beach Gardens campus. Each program requires a separate registration however a reduced rate is offered for attendees wishing to participate in both programs.
