Involving trainers in training facilities planning can enhance an institution’s curricula, better prepare students and law enforcement personnel for real-life situations, and generate revenue from outside agencies seeking enhanced training. This session will explore trends and partnership development strategies around simulation-based training facilities for first responder students and professionals. Today’s national conversation emphasizes community-based policing, domestic terrorism, and natural disasters; we’ll share how projects like Cuyahoga Community College’s public safety training village addresses these issues. Join us to learn how experiential training programs can enable your institution to emerge as a regional and national leader in public safety learning.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Align institutional goals for first responder training with state-of-the-art offerings for both first responder professionals and students.
  2. Identify local, regional, and federal partners that will maximize institutional and community training opportunities.
  3. Engage a diverse set of public safety and academic stakeholders in the integrated planning process for your facility.
  4. Explain how to develop an advanced hub for experiential student and professional first responder training in real-world environments.
