Institute Course Deliveries

As of March 4, 2013 the institute has delivered course 401 and 405 in over 20 cities Nationwide.

The Institute for Homeland Security & Workforce Development partnered with the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) in 2007 when North Carolina Central University was selected as one of six academic partners chosen to prepare rural emergency responders nationwide for all-hazards incidents.

MGT 401 Planning and Intervention for Gangs, Hate, and Terrorist Groups in Rural Jails and Prisonsfocuses on rural correctional facilities as unique environments for threat group recruitment and radicalization. The course provides valuable information about information sharing with fusion centers and helps participants develop policies for utilizing Suspicious Activity Reports in accordance with the Department of Homeland Security’s Information Sharing Initiative.


Mobilizing Faith-based Community Organizations in Preparing for Disaster
addresses the gaps in emergency preparedness that often exist in low-income, marginalized communities by utilizing the assets of faith-based community organizations as trusted institutions in their communities.  The course: 1) trains FBCO leaders in how to prepare their members and facilities for disaster, 2) Trains emergency management personnel on the value of FBCOs in disaster preparedness, and 3) Encourages partnerships between faith community leaders and local emergency management.
