AWR 148-1 16.00 hour instructor-led course

Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents - Partnering Rural Law Enforcement, First Responders, and Local School Systems (Train-the-Trainer)

Developed by the University of Findlay as a member of the RDPC, this instructor-led course is designed to prepare individuals to teach the AWR 148 Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents: Partnering Rural Law Enforcement, First Responders, and Local School Systems curriculum in their jurisdictions. Characteristics of adult learners, types of learning styles, and effective preparation strategies are discussed in an adult learning module. Participants are required to conduct a teach-back using their knowledge of the subject matter and adult learning principles. Major discussion points relative to the AWR 148 course materials are reviewed to ensure participants fully grasp the elements that must be in place to effectively plan and prepare for, respond to, and recover from a school-based emergency. This Train-the-Trainer course emphasizes the collaboration and communication that must exist among the local emergency responders, school personnel, and other community stakeholders for maximum coordination in the event of a school-based incident.

The primary audience for the train-the-trainer version includes certified trainers, administrators and managers, and safety and security personnel with extensive experience in school safety, K-12 administration, and law enforcement. Adult teaching experience is highly recommended.

Offerings of the train-the-trainer are limited and require all students to have completed the direct delivery of AWR 148 prior to attendance. Registrants must be approved through the state homeland security administrative agency. A maximum of 16 pre-registered students may attend.

Note: Preparation for the Day 2 teach-back may require evening study time by the student.
