Training Institutes

UCCI hosts Training Institutes to provide open registration training opportunities to fit range of needs! From smaller agencies seeking to adopt a new program with few staff to train, to large agencies who have previously adopted programs and need options for training new staff. We provide both online events as well as in person training events right here at the University of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Virtual Training Institute (online)

UCCI’s Virtual Training Institute (VTI) is a series of ongoing training opportunities comprised of synchronous online courses each that rotate monthly through UC assessment, interventions, and CBI curricula.

Attendance and participation is required for each day of synchronous virtual training. The 2024 series is listed below and you can read more about each product by clicking on the course title.

Annual Training Institutes (at UC)

Each year, UCCI hosts week-long Training Institute(s) on campus at the University of Cincinnati. Registrants can choose from a variety of training options, and take advantage of networking opportunities with staff from other agencies across the US. These institutes allow agencies who have previously been trained and implemented UCCI programs to get new hire staff up to speed, while also allowing individuals from smaller agencies a cost-effective way to implement evidence-based practices. In 2024, UCCI will host two Training Institutes at UC!

May ATI (4/29 - 5/3/24)

The May Institute will offer training for users and facilitators of the Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS), Assessment-Driven Case Planning, Continuous Quality Improvement with Risk Assessments (CQI), Cognitive-Behavior Interventions – Core Adult (CBI-CA), and Group Facilitation Skills (GS). Additionally, training of trainer sessions will be offered for two separate curricula: Cognitive-Behavior Interventions – Substance Use Adult (CBI-SUA ToT) and Cognitive-Behavior Interventions – Employment Adult (CBI-EA ToT).

For those participating in training on Group Interventions, we’ve included a focused day of training on honing group facilitation skills. Session content will cover multiple topics such as engagement, virtual groups, modifying delivery (1-on-1 vs group), semi-open vs closed enrollment, enhancing role play/practice, and fidelity.

For those participating in training on risk assessment and/or case planning, we’ve included a focused day of training on continuous quality improvement with risk assessments. Session content will cover multiple topics such as interviewing skills, inter-rater reliability, coaching, and tracking reassessments, along with a review of some available tools and how they can be used to help ensure fidelity.
