This is an online course.
To assist high schools across the country in their safety and security efforts, The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at The University of Southern Mississippi, in conjunction with the United States Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, and Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service’s National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (TEEX/NERRTC), have developed a new online training course focused on interscholastic athletic programs and after-school activities.
The Risk Management for Interscholastic Athletics and After-School Activities (AWR-375-W) training course allows participants to identify and develop an increased understanding of planning and responding to incidents that may occur after school hours.
The Risk Management for Interscholastic Athletics and After-School Activities course participants will include athletic directors, school resource officers, public safety professionals, facility/operation managers, emergency managers/planners, school administrators, as well as school district administrators. Faculty, staff, and school club advisors will also benefit from the training.
The overall goal of this online learning program is to enhance the safety and security awareness of individuals responsible for organizing, supervising, and supporting after school activities and interscholastic athletic events. Those responsible for organizing, supervising, and supporting the activities and events will learn and apply best practices for risk management, professional development, communication, and planning.
