Research shows that, when implemented correctly, incident simulation training is a powerful educational tool. Chief Ted Nee will share his more than twenty years of experience designing, developing, and training with incident simulations. Utilizing lecture, demonstration, and group activities, he will illustrate best practices for incorporating incident simulation training in your department. He will cover the design and development process for various types of simulations including: size-up exercises, timed, multi-unit simulations and testing simulations. Take this opportunity to participate in several types of simulation exercises. Additionally, learn tips and tricks for incident scene photography, non-destructive photo editing and simulation design and development. Finally, discuss the pros and cons of various methods to implement and deploy a simulation training program.
