What is MANDT Training? Is it required?

The Mandt System is the core learning curriculum at JNCS. We require all employees to certify in Mandt every year.

Mandt teaches staff the strategies for building healthy relationships with the individuals they support in order to recognize potentially negative situations and use prevention and de-escalation techniques to avoid/prevent challenging behaviors. By calming your own emotional responses and managing your behavior you can interact with other people positively. Training focuses on providing non-physical strategies and tools to help cultivate healthy communication skills and steps for helping people de-escalate. Healthy workplace relationships are necessary components to create trust between supported individuals and staff.

What Trainings are required for JNCS Employees? How often do I need to recertify?
  • Mandt 1 & 2: Required every (1) year.*
    • *One day only if you re-certify within 12 months
