The CDP has released its training numbers for the month of December.
During the month the Center conducted 30 courses for 1,002 students on its campus in Anniston, AL, and 116 courses for 1,882 students at sites across the U.S. and its territories.
That brought the total number of students who've been trained by the CDP since it first opened its doors, in 1998, to 1,130,230.
That number includes more than 180,000 medical professionals, 600,000 law enforcement professionals, 35,000 emergency management professionals, and nearly 300,000 responders.
It also includes students representing all 50 states and U.S. territories, a number of tribal nations, and a number of foreign countries.
