Disaster Zone Podcast: Virtual ICS Training

The future of all training will include virtual training courses.

The latest Disaster Zone podcast, "Virtual ICS Trainings," is now up and running. I think online training is the future. People have gotten accustomed to online events and it saves the costs of travel time and travel expenses. Not to mention, higher level courses are sometimes hard to get admission into. 

The description of the podcast is below:

"One of the outcomes from the coronavirus pandemic is that our normal training sessions have been disrupted. People can’t gather into classrooms. A solution to that issue, and one that will be used going forward is virtual training that goes beyond the online Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) self-paced learning. This podcast is an interview with Todd Manns, Owner and Managing Partner of The Blue Cell. In this session we discuss what their course offerings are and how the instruction is conducted. There are many benefits, to include being able to mix and match attendees from different areas of the country and from different disciplines." 

Eric Holdeman is a contributing writer for Emergency Management magazine and is the former director of the King County, Wash., Office of Emergency Management.
