Vector Solutions, a leader in eLearning and performance support solutions for critical industries, is offering law enforcement personnel complimentary access to three of its online EMS training courses as free educational resources.
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact the United States, law enforcement personnel are tasked with new challenges when enforcing quarantine mandates and protecting communities, the company says. The three hours of training, provided through Vector’s TargetSolutions brand, provides law enforcement personnel with safety best practices and critical information to help prevent infection.
Course titles include: “Aerosol Transmissible Diseases,” “Respiratory Protection,” and “EMS Protecting Yourself from Influenza.”
“As a training and operations solution for public safety agencies, it is our duty to help serve the first responders putting their lives on the line every day during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Alex Berry, executive vice president for Vector Solutions. “By providing these EMS training courses at no cost, law enforcement agencies can better understand how airborne pathogens are transmitted, how to properly utilize protective equipment, and how to protect themselves and others.”
Here is more information about the three free training courses, which can be accessed online at https://www.targetsolutions.com/free-covid-19-training-for-law-enforcement:
* "Aerosol Transmissible Diseases" is based on the ATD standard written by Cal/OSHA in 2009 as a direct result of SARS, Avian Influenza, and the Novel Influenza H1N1. Lessons in this course address how airborne pathogens are emitted from an infected person.
* "Respiratory Protection" provides information on the selection, safe use, and maintenance of respiratory protective devices.
* "EMS Protecting Yourself from Influenza" explores the varied viral mediums that cause influenza and other upper respiratory infections. The evidence-based lessons cover how the annual inoculation comes to be, transmission vectors, mortality and morbidity.
TargetSolutions’ parent company, Vector Solutions, "is committed to serving the everyday heroes of local communities," the company says. "When the coronavirus affected organizations, schools and neighborhoods, Vector Solutions released a series of complimentary COVID-19 video courses through its Vector Cares Program."
