ASIST TuneUP

This 3.5 hour workshop is only for people with a valid ASIST 11 or 11.1 certificate.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) Tune-Up is a half-day refresher course developed by LivingWorks Education for participants who have completed ASIST. The workshop offers participants an opportunity to review the Pathway for Assisting Life Model, discuss successes and challenges in using the model, and clarify concepts covered within the model.

Question and Answer

Does my ASIST certificate expire?
