Crisis Negotiation Print E-mail

The NTOA provides a national forum for crisis negotiators throughout the United States and around the world. In addition to offering several training courses for basic and advanced crisis negotiations each year, NTOA conducts a well-attended annual CNT conference which offers dynamic speakers and timely incident debriefs.
