Enrollment in mediated courses is currently on hold. This is an advanced-level, 6-week online mediated course designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to identify and research hot topics in fire and life safety to ultimately identify, promote and embrace change within the fire and life safety community. This includes local, state, tribal, and national fire and life safety entities.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Scan the environment and conduct valid research into new technologies, trends, laws and products.
- Read, interpret and apply relevant research in such areas as human behavior, fire dynamics and other emerging issues.
- Identify emerging local, state, tribal, and national fire and life safety challenges and develop strategic solutions.
- Demonstrate how research plays a part in community risk reduction.
