|Let me introduce you to "aLEX"
As you know by now, since its inception in 2000 under the leadership of ADM Siler (former USCG Commandant), the Academy has been an institution with no walls, exporting all of its instructor-led training to the bays, rivers, lakes, harbors, and coastline of the United States (and internationally), so that agencies and officers can receive their training in their area of operations, on their boats, and alongside their local partners. Understanding the increased challenges to time, budgets, and an evolving workforce that public safety agencies are facing all across the country (see the White Paper: Navigating the Changing Seascape of Maritime Public Safety), the Academy has used its knowledge, relationships, resources, adult learning expertise, and technology partnerships to provide a mobile, easily accessible and affordable solution for every officer and department.
For Officers, Agencies, Departments, and Organizations - An Opportunity to Save Time and Money
In a unique Private-Public Partnership, the NMLEA has worked with recognized leaders in the online/e-learning workspace, and subject matter experts from the public safety community, to provide a holistic solution for public safety training. The AcademyOnline Program provides agencies with a wealth of online learning tools that encompass all aspects of maritime law enforcement, public safety, and emergency response. Most importantly, the AcademyOnline Program allows you as an agency, to transform your traditional Instructor-Led Training (ILT) into an adaptable, affordable, accessible mobile learning platform.
For Trainers, SMEs, and Professional Instructors - An Opportunity to Reach Further, and Be Rewarded
It also provides trainers and professional instructors an opportunity to bring their skills to the mobile world, reaching more people across the country (and internationally) than they ever could before, without having to invest time, effort, and money into the digital learning landscape. There is no research that has to be done on what LMS to purchase, or time spent searching for a platform to use to record your teaching. There is no learning-curve or struggle trying to figure out how to translate a traditional Instructor-Led Training (ILT) course into the online environment. The Academy staff will work wiht you and facilitate the process.
