NESA-MTT Wraps Up Unprecedented Year of Service
On Dec. 17, CAP's National Emergency Services Academy-Mobile Training Team (NESA-MTT) completed its 15th course delivery for FEMA since being requested to assist them through the COVID-19 crisis.
Both of FEMA's schools closed in March because of the pandemic. That left them with an unfunded requirement to support Just-in-Time training for many emergency managers working in emergency operations centers across the country.
When asked to support, the NESA-MTT stepped in and provided qualified instructors to support both FEMA K2300 EOC (pictured) and Incident Command System Instructor courses. As a result, 362 students from across the nation and 51 international students were trained and 20 ICS instructors were certified.
In all, 71 NESA-MTT classes were provided to 2,027 students around the world (including CAP members in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Europe and the Far East) in 2020; 57 were conducted virtually through CAP's “Global Campus.”
