CONVERGE Cultural Competence in Hazards and Disaster Training Module

Source(s):  Natural Hazards Center

The Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado Boulder is so pleased to share our newly released CONVERGE Cultural Competence in Hazards and Disaster Training Module. You can access the free online module here.

This is part of a larger series of online modules designed to accelerate the training of a diverse hazards and disaster workforce. These interactive, 30- to 60-minute courses cover a variety of topics that researchers and practitioners can use to quickly background themselves on research relevant to the study of extreme events. Upon successful completion of a 10 question quiz, users receive a certificate (so these can be useful for classroom assignments as well as other activities). For more information on the CONVERGE modules, see here.

To learn more about this new module, please join us Friday, April 3, 2020, from 1:00-1:30 p.m. Mountain Standard Time for a live webinar where our team will provide a demonstration of the CONVERGE Cultural Competence in Hazards and Disaster Research Training Module. To register for the upcoming webinar, please visit this link.
