First responders deal with traumatic events repeatedly, on a scale unimaginable to those outside the emergency and military services. Our specialized online program and courses explore how trauma in the workplace impacts mental health, and provides you with tools and techniques to better prepare and support yourself and others in the face of trauma. We’ve developed our program in partnership with the Tema Conter Memorial Trust, which provides training and support for public safety and military personnel dealing with mental health injuries.

  • Choose from flexibly paced online courses
  • Learn from active-duty and retired professionals in the first-response field
  • Build a network of peers sharing similar challenges
