FEI International Crisis Responder Network Training and CEU’s

As an international leader in crisis management services, we regularly recruit trauma specialists to join our crisis responder network. Crisis responders participate in short-term contract work in response to mass casualty events such as natural disasters, terrorist attacks and aviation accidents.

To become part of the network, individuals must be trained by FEI and will be required to attend the FEI Crisis Responder Training.  This training is facilitated via webinar and those who complete the training are eligible to earn up to 8 continuing education units (CEU’s).

When deployed to provide support during a crisis, the trauma specialists will be compensated at an hourly rate ranging from $75-$90 USD/hour (depending on the level of support required for those impacted and as requested by our customer).

If you are interested in learning more about the training and the opportunity to become a member of our International Crisis Responder Network, please contact us at:414-359-6571 or you may see details on the training and register at the link below:


FEI Behavioral Health has been a leader in providing humanitarian support for over 40 years to our customers, their family members and, their communities following a critical event. At times the crisis may require organizational support such as an on-site debriefing.  At other times, we may be asked to provide support on a larger scale due to a mass casualty event. In those situations, basic psychological first aid is provided.

FEI has experienced an increase in the requests for critical incident support from our customers.  Additionally, with the escalation and threat of terrorism and natural disasters, FEI would like to invite your agency, and your clinicians, to join our elite network focused on providing the necessary support at the most critical times.
