ESF-8 Awareness Training

Florida Department of Health - Bureau of Preparedness

The Bureau of Preparedness at the Florida Department of Health is in charge of health-related emergency response across the state. The bureau needed to provide training on the basics of emergency management and response to personnel with a wide variety of knowledge and skills who would be called upon to perform tasks in an emergency that are outside the scope of their usual job functions.CIMES developed web-based training on the basics of emergency management and response. The training covers all four phases of the Disaster Management Cycle—Preparedness, Response, Recovery, and Mitigation.

Traffic Forecasting Training

Florida Department of Transportation - Transportation Data Analytics Office

Traffic analysts at the Florida Department of Transportation help plan for the maintenance and future construction of state roadway systems. The FDOT central office needed to create a more standardized process for traffic forecasting by implementing a common training course across all Florida districts. CIMES carried out a four-month research project using techniques that included a job task analysis, focus groups, office observations, and in-depth interviews. This process culminated in the generation of a preliminary competency model that was validated by a team of traffic analyst experts. Twelve cases at varying degrees of difficulty and in various project types were identified to be part of a scenario-based training approach. Tasks, knowledge, procedures, skills, tools, and other critical elements were identified for each case. The new training requires learners to perform all the tasks needed to produce a traffic forecast report for each case

Recall Audit Checks: FDA Form 3177 Training

Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services - Division of Food Safety

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services conducts recall audit checks in collaboration with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to ensure that food and product recalls have been appropriately carried out. The results of these checks are reported on FDA Form 3177. However, because inspectors are seldom required to conduct recall audit checks or use this form, up-front training related to this task is not reinforced by experience and thus may not be retained by the inspectors. CIMES developed award winning just-in-time web-based training. The scenario-based training uses an approach that helps learners grasp concepts quickly and effectively. The module is being used nationally.
