As the fiscal year comes to an end, the newly re-opened Training Center is getting a few more preparedness courses in. The last two months, students from across the State attended the Certified Healthcare Emergency Coordinator courses. The program is broken down into two sections, Basic & Advanced. Where participants learn a variety of concepts, principles, and best practices to give them the skills and knowledge to make critical decisions needed to reduce the potential threats to life and property at the healthcare facilities they are responsible for. This is a comprehensive training program to help participants gain not only the tools- but greater confidence to lead their agency and/or facility through an emergency incident, event, or an exercise.

A special thank you to each of our recent class participants/attendees.  Your dedication and commitment to enhancing your individual knowledge base add significant value to the preparedness, response capabilities, and resiliency of not only your respective facility/agency but to our entire region, and the State as a whole! Your contributions to the classroom discussions were greatly appreciated!

If anyone was interested in attending but missed out on this important training opportunity, we invite all of our members to consider attending a future course offering.  We are committed to making this CHEC course series available to our stakeholders at least once each budget period.  Please see our Calendar section of the website or contact Monica McCullough for any additional information.
