FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness this week released its number of web-based course completions for August.
The CDP recorded 2,413 web-based course completions during the month. Completions result from responders taking one or more Virtual-Instructor-Led Training (VILT) presentations or one or more self-paced courses in the center’s online training library.
The CDP currently has a catalog of more than 50 VILT offerings, which span a variety of topics from healthcare facility preparedness to understanding crowd dynamics for mitigation and de-escalation of large-scale events.
Brief descriptions about and scheduled dates and times of all CDP VILT presentations can be found at https://cdp.dhs.gov/vilt.
Responders who want to attend a VILT event must register prior to its start date. Once registered, they are provided links and login instructions to the virtual classroom, in addition to other information.
The CDP’s online training library currently consists of more than 20 courses for responders in a variety of disciplines (i.e. Fire Services, Healthcare, Law Enforcement).
Brief descriptions about each of the CDP online offerings, as well as information on how to register for the courses, can be found at https://cdp.dhs.gov/online_course.
