Simulation Design and Development

Incident simulation training is a powerful educational tool that is gaining wide acceptance in the fire and emergency services. In this workshop, Ted Nee will share his more than twenty years of experience designing and developing incident simulation training. Utilizing lecture, and demonstration Chief Nee will illustrate best practices for incorporating incident simulation training in your department as well as tips and tricks that he has learned for rapid simulation design and development. 

This course will cover the design and development process for several types of simulations including size-up exercises, multi-unit simulations, and testing/evaluation scenarios.
