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

During the month the Center conducted 40 courses for 1,345 students on its campus in Anniston, AL, and 111 courses for 1,772 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 about 1.1 million.

Resident training during the month was highlighted by a Hazardous Materials Theme Week, where responders were taught how to deal with incidents where specific materials have been used to purposely but silently harm or kill people. Courses tied to the week included the CDP’s Hazardous Materials Technician for CBRNE Incidents (HT) course; Hazardous Materials Technologies: Sampling, Monitoring, and Detection (HMT) course; Hazardous Materials Evidence Collection for CBRNE Incidents (HEC) course; Emergency Medical Operations for CBRNE Incidents (EMO) course; Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents (HERT) course; and Healthcare Leadership for Mass Casualty Incidents (HCL) course.

Resident Training during the month also included an Integrated Capstone Event (ICE) involving students from the CDP’s Healthcare Leadership for Mass Casualty Incidents and Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents courses, and students from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center’s Active Shooter Threat Training Program.
