School Crisis Management is a concise but rich 2.5 hours of video-based instruction that you can complete at your desk or on your mobile device, and on your own time. Unlike most self-paced online training courses, students can interact with the instructor and other students. Students also have the option of replaying all the lessons as many times as desired. The best part of the course, however, is the instructor.
