SUNY Empire's Certificate in Crisis Prevention and Intervention (CCPI) is designed to advance undergraduate students in becoming skilled professionals who have the potential to respond to, manage and treat people in crisis. The CCPI is non-licensing and structured around courses that address fundamental aspects of how crises, disasters, and emergencies affect individuals, families, and communities, while examining the assessment, referral systems, and resilience-building interventions. 

The CCPI incorporates a five-course curriculum that focuses on equipping students with fundamental skills through primarily advanced-level undergraduate courses. On the website, all promotional materials, and in the first crisis intervention course, prospective and current students will be notified that this is a non-licensing program. Current students who include the CCPI as part of their degree plan will be asked to sign a disclaimer that they understand that the program does not lead to licensure.
