RECOMMENDED PRIOR COURSEWORK:
Students must bring all applicable prerequisite certificates, transcripts, etc. (except for SARIO since certificates are not issued) to the course. Certificates and transcripts will be verified prior to the student being allowed to participate in the course. Any missing prerequisites will disqualify the student from being able to attend the course.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning and the class will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Course instruction runs until approximately 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. Training will resume promptly at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning and the course will conclude at approximately 5:00 p.m. Sunday evening.
This class involves significant hands-on training. There will be exercises spread throughout the two days designed to reinforce presented topics. You will work in groups. Groups will be organized during the class and we will ensure you work with people from other agencies and experience levels whenever possible.
Bring a pen, pencil, and notebook for note taking and a file folder to collect/organize all the handouts. Finally, if you would like an electronic copy of the reference materials, bring a USB key with at least 1GB of free space.
The structured lecture concludes at lunch on Sunday. After lunch, we will convene a tabletop exercise. We will present a realistic scenario and your group will have 15-20 tasks to perform, each stressing a core competency of the Search Manager.
In order to allow instructors time to prepare final course materials, course registration will close on January 10, 2017 at 12:00 P.M. CST. NO COURSE REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED PAST THIS DEADLINE.
