The University of Hawaii at Hilo’s College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) is offering several online “Tsunami Preparedness” courses taught by oceanography professor and tsunami specialist Walter Dudley.
The self-paced courses use online videos and quizzes to help participants prepare for tsunami hazards by becoming more knowledgeable about their nature and impact, characteristics, the Tsunami Warning System and specialized training in the area of their choosing.
Participants choose from specialized courses designed specifically for businesses, educators, ocean recreation businesses, ocean recreation business owners and community emergency response teams.
Each course contains four modules, each followed by a short quiz. Upon successful completion of the course, a certificate is awarded.
The courses are offered at an introductory rate of $50 each through February.
