Previous year’s attendees said:
- "Excellent course"
- "A wealth of subjects which were fearlessly tackled. Good balance of theory and practice"
- "Great well–rounded content. Real-world examples and case studies were very helpful"

Several interactive class activities provide additional hands–on experience. Students will also practice what is learned: the course concludes with a crisis simulation in which students take active roles in a simulated disaster, including a realistic news media briefing.
