CIT Certification

To be recognized as a CIT Officer by the State of Utah's Legislature and the Governor's Concurrent Resolution, officers are required to attend a forty-hour CIT Utah Academy authorized by the State of Utah Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health.  Officers must demonstrate their skills through scenario based testing and also pass a State of Utah Crisis Intervention Team written exam. Successful completion will allow the officer to be recognized by the State of Utah's CIT program as a CIT Officer.

The certification is valid for a period of two years. CIT Officers must attend four hours of continuing education for every two years to maintain their certification. Continuing education can be classified as any class, lecture, or training regarding mental health issues. CIT Officers may also attend an annual recertification class or participate in any CIT Academy to receive continuing education hours.
