This 2-day course demonstrates to students nationally recognized principles that, when used appropriately, can lead to community risk-reduction programs that can measure success in local communities. This course will give students the opportunity to explore programs from communities across the United States that have been showcased at Vision 20/20 symposiums. These programs demonstrate what nationally recognized organizations identify as examples of “best practices” in community risk reduction.
At the end of the course, students will be evaluated through a 25-question, multiple-choice examination. A final grade will be provided to each student. The minimum score needed to pass is 70.
