The class includes information on the following topics: identifying individuals in suicidal or other types of crisis; communication; counseling; active listening skills; and suicide/crisis intervention techniques and other subjects.

The 40- to 60-hour training classes are held in Novato for 6 weeks on Tuesdays & Thurs 4-5:30 pm with other classes and trainings as needed. For those becoming volunteers there are 4 additional Tuesdays.

Classes are held in January, April, and September of each year.
