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.

Our discussion forums offer an opportunity for information networking between negotiators and tactical officers. This forum is available to all NTOA members.

The NTOA is part of the NCNA.
