MGT 418 Readiness: Training Identification Preparedess Planning
Course Description:
This course teaches participants how to create effective training plans for their agencies and jurisdictions. By evaluating their abilities to meet their emergency operations plan (EOP) using traditional and national preparedness tools, participants can answer the following critical readiness questions: • How prepared do we need to be? • How prepared are we? • How do we prioritize efforts to close the difference? Agencies that plan and train together are much better equipped to successfully respond together. In this course, participants learn a Jurisdiction Training Assessment Process in which an integrated assessment team creates a jurisdictional profile and evaluates their abilities to meet their EOP. Participants are then able to identify and catalog training gaps and identify ways to close them by prioritizing training efforts, developing improvement plans and implementing a course of action.

Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) / Communications Plan Review and Development
Course Description:
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are formal written guidelines or instructions that contain both operational and technical components. In many cases, SOPs are designed to facilitate cross-discipline and cross-jurisdictional operations on a day-to-day or emergency basis. Clearly defined interoperable communications SOPs facilitate an orderly and efficient response to multi-agency incidents and events as routine as daily calls for service, and as catastrophic as large-scale disasters. In addition to SOPs, various state/territory, urban area, regional, and/or tribal planning documents include specific communications components. This course is one (1) day.

Everyone is Leading - Motivating Today's Leaders for Tomorrow's Challenges
Course Description:
Leadership is definitely not about rank, position or title. Leadership is about action and interactions. Leadership is about doing what’s right, not what is popular. Perhaps the most important lesson learned is that everyone in an organization has the ability and sometimes the obligation to lead. Our specially designed leadership course provides proven techniques, and methods to become a successful leader no matter your position or title. With over three decades of real public safety experience in various leadership roles, we have seen what unsuccessful leaders can do to a team, and we’ve also learned what characteristics make a great leader. This exclusive course provides each participant with a renewed sense of identity, purpose, and skill. A true leader must build and maintain excellent interpersonal skills to establish themselves as someone people will trust. Leaders can build and earn trust through positive actions and demonstrations of support, guidance, and real honesty.
