Education Credits

Qualifying for Credit at the Congress

Delegates to the National Congress can enroll in the Continuing Education Program, and receive continuing education credits at no additional cost by submiting to the National Blueprint for Secure Communities a description of a best practice in their community, and for attending the Congress general sessions. 

Education credits focus on the new area of structuring public/private partnerships and identifying emerging practices and technologies that can augment public sector response capability.  The program has been developed with the assistance of Texas A&M Universtity's Integrated Center for Homeland Security, in coordination with the Joint Interagency Training Center (JITC) and in consultation with a number of colleges and universities which are represented in the ReadyCommunities Partnership.
