The CDP has released its training numbers for the month of April.

During the month, the Center conducted 49 courses for 1,627 students on its campus in Anniston, AL, and 194 courses for 3,769 students at sites across the U.S. and its territories.

That brought the total number of students who have been trained by the CDP since it first opened its doors, in 1998, to 1,099,469.

Resident Training during the month was highlighted by the participation of 103 healthcare providers from Wisconsin, which is scheduled to host the Democratic National Convention in 2020.  The providers took one of three courses: Emergency Medical Operations for CBRNE Incidents (EMO), Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents (HERT) or Healthcare Leadership for Mass Casualty Incidents (HCL).

Resident Training during the month also included a cohort of 119 students from the Florida Department of Health who participated in those same three courses; 46 responders from Salt Lake City who participated in three separate Hazardous Materials-related courses in addition to EMO, HERT and HCL; 34 students from the Emergency Medical Services Training Academy in San Diego who attended the EMO course; and 24 members of the Philadelphia Fire Department’s Hazardous Material Unit who attended the Hazardous Material Technician course.
