Training & Consultation

Check & Connect is a research-based intervention. Implementing it with fidelity helps schools and organizations optimize outcomes. To that end, we offer a comprehensive manual as well as several training and consultation options for sites considering or already implementing Check & Connect.

We maintain a cadre of experienced, professional trainers to provide these services. The Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota is the only approved provider of Check & Connect resources and training.

Training & Consultation Options

We offer the following trainings in select locations across the United States and abroad, as well as on-site at your location (select the training option that best suits your needs):

On-site Trainings

Schools and organizations may request on-site training to prepare local staff to implement each component of Check & Connect. One great plus to having our staff come to you is that you also receive pre- and post-training consultation to determine your specific needs (in preparation for the training) and to assist with implementation (follow-up). The cost is determined based on number of participants.

To request on-site training, please complete the Training Inquiry form or contact us at 1-866-434-0010 or by email at
