Virtual CRC (Web-based)

Course Number: WB1639

Following a mass casualty radiation emergency, public health professionals will play a crucial role in assessing and monitoring health effects in people who might have been exposed to radioactive materials. This process, called population monitoring, will be conducted in community reception centers (CRCs).

Virtual Community Reception Center (vCRC) is a web-based training tool that provides an overview of the CRC process for planners, managers, and potential CRC staff. After completing the program, users will be able to:

- Describe the process flow in a CRC
- Identify the key stations in a CRC
- Recognize essential services for each station in the CRC

vCRC is a self-paced program that uses a simulated 3-D environment, embedded video segments, an interactive process flow diagram, and customizable supporting resources to deliver a unique training experience for all users.
