DETAILS
Join us for our Social Media Tools and Technique course and acquire the knowledge and skills needed to use social media tools and techniques for intermediate-level messaging, strategy, and increased situational awareness. Build upon your existing knowledge with more in-depth training in the use of strategy, tools, and messaging techniques in the use of social media. Learn valuable concepts beyond the implementation of the most popular tools and strategies and of how to expand your organization's social media presence in various platforms to different audiences, in partnership with other agencies and organizations. Better your understanding of data mining and crowdsourcing techniques through practical activities and discuss potential uses for data visualization and mobile apps.

This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to use intermediate social media tools and techniques for situational awareness during an emergency. Participants will learn and use tools such as mapping applications, data analysis, and data mining for research and management. It aims to reach public and private sector organizations who have responsibility for conveying disaster-related information to the public or who are responsible for gathering information during and after a disaster.

The course will supplement and build upon NDPTC’s existing FEMA-certified performance-level course, PER-304 Social Media for Natural Disaster Response and Recovery, by providing more in-depth training in the use of social media for disaster management operations.

Target Audience: The course content is intended for public and private sector organizations who have responsibility for conveying disaster-related information to the public or who are responsible for gathering information during and after a disaster. This could include the members or representatives of the following groups:
  • Community Emergency and Community Response Teams such as neighborhood organizations or community associations, and various response teams who have communication needs before, during and after a response.
  • State, county and local emergency management agencies.
  • NGOs and other agencies such as the Red Cross or United Way.
Prerequisites: Interested participants who have not taken PER-304 but have a strong working knowledge of social media are welcome to attend. Please contact Amanda Bates at batesa@hawaii.edu if you have questions.
  1. Successful completion of PER-304 Social Media for Natural Disaster Response and Recovery.
  2. Recommended courses include: IS-42, IS-100, IS-200 and IS-700
Requirements: Participants will be required to bring their own laptop or wi-fi enabled device to the training session for the hands-on exercises. This course conducts a Pre-test, Post-test, and Course Evaluation online. If you do not have an online account prior to the class start date, you may not be able to participate in the class.
