Training Programs and Consulting Services

SOS FIRES provides a wide range of training for all disciplines involved in youth firesetting intervention and behavior management. Some courses are established and others can be designed to meet a specific need. Courses can be combined to create multiple days of learning opportunity for your team, coalition, or network.

Listed below are some of the established options. Teaching teams are made up of very experienced professionals in the field. Consider the economy of bringing courses to your community rather than trying to send your team to outside training.

Costs can vary based on a number of factors. To discuss cost, find out more about options and scheduling, or for questions, use the “Contact Us” selection in the menu above to contact SOS FIRES.
