I found it interesting that people would not feel they could contribute to the subject of training because they were relatively new. I am fully convinced that people without extensive training in emergency communication are the best people to make comments about the training that is available.

If we can start out with enough material (in the form of links) to cover what the experienced people think is enough and then receive questions on "what about ......", or "how do I ......" or "where is ......, I don't find it in any of the links", then it is easy to identify what additional material is needed and possibly where it needs to be added. This rounds out the existing training and gives everyone a look through "new eyes"; might even see new things that way.

Mr. Harris SIR ;-) would you post the links to your RACES training?

The Colorado ARES training is at http://www.qsl.net/aresco/ under "training" on the navigation bar.

Anyone else with links to some training material they like?  

I think that when (if?) we cannot get any further input on additional training needed, we can finally start working on having people maintain current status on the  training they have.

Thoughts / comments?

Texas Engineering Extension, Domestic Preparedness Campus at Texas A&M University, has an excellent on-line course on Terrorism Awareness for emergency first-responders.  While not all of it will apply to amateur radio, there is alot of good information there if you want a little more than the hazmat-wmd modules in the FEMA IS-317 Intro to CERT course.

University of Kentucky has a similar page with somewhat different terrorism awareness material with more of a public health emphasis.

If you don't do any of the other FEMA Independent Study, at least this one is a must-have - Basic Incident Command System

Training, although basically the same will differ from one area to another, according to the wants and needs of the various ARES, RACES, and EM Agencies to be served.  Training in the ICS though basic, still varies area to area.

It seems that the way to go is the various basic courses which are offered and then adapt and train according to what is needed on the regional and local levels.  I know that there isn't too much out there on those levels, which is why a good training officer is also a necessity in well formed and managed groups.

Two general introductory Terrorism Awareness courses for emergency first responders and emergency medical personnel have been available for some time, but in a couple of months, two – three additional courses will be added:
 
-          Chemical Terrorism Awareness
-          ICS (IMS)
-          Pediatric Terrorism Awareness

As in the past there are no fees for these courses.
