Mission Critical

2012 May 17 Posted by Charles

What is Mission Critical?
Mission Critical (www.missioncriticaltv.com) is an accredited educational programming organization, reaching a targeted 2 million Public Safety officials, Criminal Justice, Healthcare professionals and First Responders. Mission Critical training is provided to a number of Federal, Municipal First Responder, Public Safety and Public Health educators through TV networks specific for public safety professionals.
The goal of Mission Critical is to improve the awareness of “best practices”, Lessons Learned and technology solutions available to support our federal, state & city officials and first responders with their mission to prepare for disasters and protect our citizens.
How is Capella and Mission Critical partnering?
Capella has sponsored a 90-minute Mission Critical program focused on new technology for emergency management. This program will start to air in June 2012 on the US Government and DOD training networks which will reach 3400 Federal Facilities. It will also air on the The Readiness NETwork to reach 340,000 Public Safety Students. In addition the program will air on The Federal Education TV channel, The National Emergency Training Center and will be shared with the Dept of Homeland Security’s Geospatial Portfolio department.
Together, Capella University and Mission Critical TV are offering a powerful way for public safety officials to gain new insights on their profession — and to earn 3.0 Continuing Professional Development credits from Capella.
How can someone get 3 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits?
Anyone who watches the 90-minute program through any channel can go to Capella’s Mission Critical site (www.capella.edu/missioncritical) to take a 25 question quiz based on the information from the program. A participant must score at least 20 out of 25 on the quiz in order for them to be able to print out a certificate for 3.0 Continuing Professional Development credits from Capella. This is free and can be done by a prospect, learner, alumni – anyone!
