- Bloodborne Pathogens for First Responders
The First Responder must have knowledge of the appropriate personal protective equipment when responding to an emergency to protect the first responder against airborne and bloodborne pathogens. In this course, learners will review the different airborne and bloodborne pathogens they will most commonly be exposed to with discussion of a new bloodborne pathogen as well as the equipment and preventative measures that should be taken for those pathogens.

- Sexual Harrassment
Sexual harassment in the workplace can happen to anyone, male or female, regardless of sexual orientation. While sexual harassment may have been overlooked, ignored, or excused in the past, that is no longer the case. Recognizing what sexual harassment is, both the subtle cues as well as the overt advances, will help you to identify potential warning signs and take the necessary steps to report sexual harassment. There are a number of preventive measures that can be employed as well as recommendations of what to do if you or one of your employees have been or are the victim of sexual harassment.
- Emergency Vehicle Driving Dynamics
Driving and operating emergency vehicles is very challenging and one of the most hazardous duties performed by emergency response personnel every day. It requires a complete understanding of how the forces of nature and physics work both for and against the safe operation of emergency vehicles. In this 1 hour course, learners will study the dynamic effects of forces like inertia, friction, and mass to better understand how the laws of physics are always in control of an emergency vehicle.
