The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) First Responders Group is pleased to present the Capacity Building Webinar Series. Initiated in November 2012, the series offers training in new information-sharing technologies and tools. The webinars strive to help participants manage information and develop tools, processes, and technology applications that can be used during an emergency. The series also aims to foster innovation and collaboration amongst first responders participating in the training.
Presentations are delivered by national leaders and field experts who share domain-specific strategies and guidance on how to implement practices designed to build local capacity to manage and use information. Webinars are free of charge and registration is not required. Participants can complete a quiz at the end of each event and earn a certificate and Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
Webinar recordings are also available on iTunes and Android podcast players, which enables optimal mobile access and viewing. Search for “First Responders Group Capacity Building Webinar Series” to download and subscribe to the podcasts.
