Make Your Training Enjoyable Not Deplorable

Friday, April 28
It is well known in our profession that training is of utmost importance. Delivery and methodology are key factors as to how well the training is accepted. Methodology, target audience, and ownership are factors that not many instructors think about when scheduling and delivering training. Andragogical training is a methodology that is overlooked and could be a major factor as to the success of the training. Another key issue is interdisciplinary training. In today's emergency services, we work with multiple agencies more than ever, yet we do not train together. This class highlights the need and processes to accomplish this interagency training.
