Select DHS/FEMA-Funded Training Courses Available in a Live Virtual Format
The NCS⁴ is currently offering three safety and security courses in a live virtual format. Each DHS/FEMA-funded course has been converted from the original in-person format into a virtual format in order to adapt to the challenges resulting from the pandemic and meet current training needs.
Each of these courses is designed to be interactive and allow individuals to become more confident in their ability to identify, prevent, and manage incidents. The key principles that individuals will learn range from risk management, evacuation messaging, threat prioritization, and communication. Each class is being presented in a virtual format online that requires five hours each day for three consecutive days.
You can learn more about each of these courses by visiting the NCS⁴ website or by clicking on one of the following courses below:
AWR-167: Sport Event Risk Management
MGT-412: Sport Venue Evacuation and Protective Actions
MGT-466: Sport and Special Event Enhanced Risk Management and Assessment
These courses represent a cooperative effort between The University of Southern Mississippi’s National Center for Spectator Sports Security and Safety (USM/NCS⁴) and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service’s National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (TEEX/NERRTC), a member of The Texas A&M University System.
