SCM Instructor Recertification

COVID-19 Update – SCM Public Training Courses for June 

JKM Training staff have been working on developing alternatives for conducting our SCM Instructor Recertification course during the COVID-19 pandemic.  There have been a number of cancelled training programs already and there is uncertainty moving forward regarding the ability to hold gatherings and how many people will be permitted at one time.  These issues have forced us to change the format of all Instructor programs through the end of June.  The Instructor Recertification will have 2 training options.  Option 1 will consist of an online course plus one 1/2 day session of in-person ESPI training/skill out (limited class size – max 9).  All in-person sessions will be hands off training while maintaining social distancing guidelines.  Option 2 will consist of an online course plus live virtual ESPI training/skill out.

We feel this is the best plan at this point with an understanding that it may need to adjust as States update their action plans (all cancellation/change fees will be waived during this time period).  We appreciate your patience and understanding during the unprecedented situation.  We are committed to providing our training in the safest manner possible.


JKM Training, Inc. is proud to present the 2020 Instructor Recertification Training Program! This is a two-day training experience in which certified SCM Instructors will review the SCM curriculum to clarify content and sharpen teaching & performance skills. In addition to a review of relevant training policy, the program will provide a troubleshooting session to resolve common training issues and explore new information delivery methods. A main focus of the 2020 Instructor Recertification training will be the integration of trauma and brain development research information to the existing SCM curriculum.

This information will provide:

  • Trauma definitions
  • Data from the ACES research
  • The effects of trauma on brain Development
  • The Increased occurrence of extreme behavior
  • Crisis intervention through the trauma lens
  • The importance of human resilience

The program will conclude with testing and emergency safety physical intervention assessment to verify required competencies. SCM instructors are required to attend an SCM Instructor Recertification on an annual basis. This requirement is consistent with standards of the professional community, as well as, regulatory guidelines set by governing authorities.
