NSSRA Training

If this is your first job and you’re not sure what to do, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Maybe you’ve been doing this for a while, but need some refreshers on specific topics — we’re here to help with that too.

All NSSRA employees attend our New Hire Orientation, which includes the basics on safety, policies, behavior management and lifting/transferring participants. Once those foundational subjects have been covered, you are welcome to register for further training on various subjects (full list below).


  • All staff are paid an hourly rate to attend training.
  • All trainings are conducted by NSSRA staff, so your instructors are just a phone call or email away from answering your questions and walking you through additional scenarios.
  • Your training records and expiration dates are easily accessible online through BambooHR.
  • Training will give you skills and knowledge you can apply outside of NSSRA and help enhance your leadership, communication, problem-solving and creative abilities.

  • Behavior Management
  • Crisis Prevention Intervention
  • Driving (Operation of NSSRA vehicles)
  • First Aid/CPR
