Students can expect to learn about:
SRJC has proven ability, leadership, instructors, and community partnerships to prepare police, fire, and emergency medical first responders (http://www.santarosa.edu/ps ). Building from this foundation, SRJC will now help prepare students for homeland security work. Students will employ “table-top war-game” style exercises to prepare and respond to simulated homeland security events. Students can expect a variety of talented presenters representing TSA, FEMA, CG, Cal-EMA, ICE, local LE, private security firms, etc. Each student will also have the opportunity to research and present a relevant topic of their choice.
This course (and future courses in HS) positions SRJC as one of a growing number of community colleges across the country preparing students for entry-level government and industry careers in homeland security, a vocational area still experiencing growth in the SF Bay Area and nationwide. The course will cost $204 for California residents and earns 3 college units. Please register online or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
