Request COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) Training
LSU NCBRT/ACE has developed a new course to address the novel coronavirus. Biological Incidents Awareness: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) (AWR-324) is a mobile seven-hour awareness-level course that will provide participants with general knowledge about COVID-19 and the protective measures that will help guard against further spread of the disease. The primary target audience for this course is focused on first responders and emergency management personnel who need general knowledge about COVID-19 and the protective measures and equipment that will help guard against further spread of the disease.
The course is undergoing final content review by CDC/HHS before it can be scheduled. In order to expedite scheduling once we have a firm rollout date, we have created a training request specific to Bio Awareness: COVID-19. The completed request will be routed to the training manager for your FEMA region.
The course addresses the following topics:
- Disease types and outbreak history
- Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
- Prevention and universal precaution
- Personal protection
- Containment and scene control
