Courses Currently Under Development for the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium

  1.  Planning and Intervention for Gang, Hate Groups, and Terrorist Recruitment in Rural Jails and Prisons

  3. Mobilizing Faith-Based Community Organizations in Preparing for Disaster
    This course is intended to train first responder managers and faith-based organization representatives in how to effectively mobilize and engage members of their churches, temples, synagogues, and mosques, etc., in emergency planning, response and recovery.
  4.  Community Threat Group Identification and Assessment for Rural Law Enforcement Officers
    The goal of this course is to increase the effective identification and reporting of activities subversive to the interest of national security.
