New self-study course teaches community risk assessment

The National Fire Academy's Introduction to Community Risk Assessment (Q0843) is now available for student enrollment.

This new online course empowers the learner with a foundational understanding of the components, benefits and process of conducting a basic community risk assessment. The course takes approximately five hours to complete. Students can complete course segments at their convenience.

Introduction to Community Risk Assessment and its companion, Introduction to Strategic Community Risk Reduction (Q0841), build an excellent foundation when taken together for those new to community risk reduction (CRR).

While the two courses can be stand-alone offerings, it is highly recommended that students take Introduction to Strategic Community Risk Reduction first to receive the maximum benefit. Both courses use interactive realistic scenarios to expose students to real-life CRR situations.

Many departments are integrating these courses into recruit academies, station-based training and officer development. They are also appropriate for other non-fire service audiences such as law enforcement, educators, allied health professionals, juvenile justice officials and wildland urban interface partners.
