Welcome to the South Carolina Crisis Negotiators Association. From humble beginnings in 1993, the South Carolina Crisis Negotiators Association has grown to become a premier professional association recognized as such throughout the United States. In October of each year, an annual training session is held that attracts attendees from several states. The association goes to great effort to bring in quality presenters and instructors from throughout the United States and Canada so that members receive the greatest possible training available, all while trying to keep costs at a minimum. Often times because of budget constraints, this yearly session marks the only training that some of the members will receive.
