Training in 2017
The ICEM offers Public Safety Leadership Training, which made its debut in the fall, 2017.
This training was a series of 8 Fridays, culminating in group and individual projects, followed by graduation, a certificate and earned CEUs. Both the Fall, 2017 and Spring, 2018 cohorts were sold out. We intend to offer this leadership training once again, in the fall, 2019 or Spring, 2020. Stay tuned for dates and rates.
