A Multi-Disciplinary, Community Approach

IACLEA and Teresa Crocker, Chief of Police at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) are pleased to announce the presentation of a threeday course, “Managing Critical Incidents for Higher Education

Institutions: A MultiDisciplinary, Community Approach” (MGT-361).

This course trains public safety managers, administrative personnel and others involved in a response involving higher education institution campuses, in the skills necessary to effectively manage a critical incident by applying and implementing an all-hazards, multi-disciplinary, command and management team approach as described in the National Incident Management System’s (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS) and Multi-

Agency Coordination Systems (MACS). The course has specific emphasis on the unique aspects of response to critical incidents on higher education campuses. The course concludes with a practical application, role-play exercise that is customized to the campus and community in which the course is delivered.

The course is intended to assist your higher education institution and all of its stakeholders in developing an all-hazard, multi-discipline team-based approach capable of responding to a large-scale or expanding incident, whether natural or man-made. Upon course completion, participants will possess a working knowledge of the defined roles and responsibilities during a critical incident and their integration into a unified command for managing large-scale incidents such as terrorism and CBRNE incidents, as well as other significant incidents, including weather-related disasters and man-made mass casualty events.

Students will receive a certificate upon the successful completion of the course. This course will prepare participates to pass the ICS 100 and ICS 200 courses on-line.
