PER352 - Active Shooter Incident Management (16 hour)

The Active Shooter Incident Management (ASIM) course is a 16-hour performance level direct delivery course designed to improve incident management and integration of law enforcement, fire and EMS responders to active shooter events.  The course provides a model framework for use by law enforcement, fire and EMS to manage active shooter event response to improve time to threat neutralization, medical intervention, and survivability of victims.

MGT439 - 16.00 Hours; Pediatric Disaster Response and Emergency Preparedness


This course prepares students to effectively, appropriately, and safely plan for and respond to a disaster incident involving children, addressing the specific needs of pediatric patients in the event of a community based-incident. Pediatric specific planning considerations include mass sheltering, pediatric-triage, reunification planning and pediatric decontamination considerations. This is not a hands-on technical course, but instead a management resource course for stakeholders like pediatric physicians, emergency managers, emergency planners, and members of public emergency departments like EMS, Fire, Police, Public Health, and Hospitals in field of disaster response and preparedness work.


None. However, familiarity with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS) via completion of study courses IS-100, IS-200, IS-700, and IS-800 (or equivalents) is recommended
