Badge Expiration Program – CISM

Training Pathway: Emotional Response 

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM+) with Spiritual Enhancements

Dear ADRN CISM Trained Volunteer,


Thank you for your heart to minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of survivors of disaster. Our goal is to have a well-trained CIT Team (Crisis Incident Team), refreshed and prepared in CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management) Training, who is confident and ready to respond at any given time.


ADRN will be implementing an expiration procedure within our badge certification renewal program. This program will insure that those deploying to the field would be the most qualified and proficient in how they serve. In doing so our CIT Teams maintain credibility with other CISM response programs, local agencies and authorities.

Beginning September 15, 2018 a three-year certification renewal program will be activated. This requires all volunteers to review and assess their current CISM status and make necessary adjustments in order to meet the new standards of ADRN certification. Those trained prior to January 2016 have until August 2019 to achieve background check clearance, update certification requirements, and submit results. Those trained after January 2016 have until December 2019 to achieve background check clearance, update certification requirements, and submit results. Results need to be emailed to


Please note that ADRN CISM Training has been upgraded to meet national standards in order to effectively serve those in trauma. If you choose not to re-certify in CISM your badge will expire.


Once you complete the four steps listed below, a new white ADRN badge with new expiration dates will be mailed to each volunteer within 2 weeks.


The time to get prepared is before a disaster strikes! Refreshing your training will keep you prepared, confident and ready to respond. If you have any questions please email


Thank you again for your heart to be prepared and ready to serve.
