We tailor training programs to the needs of organizations. Instead of a one-size-fits-all curriculum, our tiered approach enables you to train each staff member to address the level of risk they face.
We work with you to design a training program that addresses the unique needs of your team(s) and ensures adoption.
We know that time is more valuable than money, so we don’t teach staff skills they won’t use. Our tiers make training efficient and needs-based.
Our Master Trainers work with you step by step: training your first trainers to be cultural change agents, ensuring adoption by leadership and staff, and tuning your program on a regular basis.
Designing a training program for your organization starts with understanding your needs.
Questions like these help determine how many
employees need to be trained at each tier level, and what
training methods will be effective. These are
the most important factors affecting cost.
We’ve developed a needs assessment and a spreadsheet
template to help you build the business case.
Here are some of the most important considerations:
Throughout my career as a police officer, I’ve taken classes on a variety of topics including the use of force. According to countless studies, use of force situations bring about the most injuries to police officers, and the most lawsuits. The Welle Verbal De-Escalation course gives you valuable information that falls between all of the other courses offered, helping you recognize and react to threatening behavior before it becomes necessary to go hands-on. Avoiding the need to use hands-on force greatly reduces the potential of police officer injury and costly lawsuits.
The Welle courses are extremely practical and are easily customized. The instructors are very knowledgeable and received rave reviews from our staff. Welle has allowed security units, emergency departments, and behavioral health units to use a common language and techniques that synergize our team approach in the care of our behavioral health patients. We have built Welle into our event reporting system to measure its effects on patient and staff safety.

Many of our clients combine onsite and online training methods to maximize efficient use of time. Our online courses can be curated and grouped very flexibly to teach principles and verbal de-escalation, while onsite training teaches physical techniques and provides opportunities to practice.
