Our Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) Essentials course was created to equip disaster workers with the vital information and resources they need during emergencies. It is dedicated to interstate, intrastate and international mutual aid, enabling workers to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and assist in the recovery of disaster-affected areas.
This award follows the launch of the EMAC Essentials app on the Apple and Android app stores in early 2015, enabling the public to download these apps to assist with the disaster management process.
Awards committee chair Dr. David Guralnick said: “This year's competition was incredibly competitive, with a large number of high-quality submissions. The products that were submitted used a variety of advanced and innovative techniques to improve learning and performance."
This year’s winners were announced at the International Conference on E-Learning in the Workplace (ICELW) in New York.
The list of all the 2015 winners and runners up is available on the IELA website. LEO is on Twitter @leolearning where followers can keep up to date with all of its latest award wins, news and announcements.
