This is a virtual course, offered online only and available to registered users of the Officer Virtual Academy at all times.
This course of instruction examines four different levels of stress accumulation and how they impact health to include mental, physical and emotional wellness. Methods for managing and minimizing stress are discussed as well as recognizing when outside help is required. Negative stress-neutralization methods are also discussed. The second portion of training, on a relatively unrelated topic, familiarizes the student officer with recent history of duty gear as well as health, safety and security concerns of contemporary gear placement. Multiple gear platforms are discussed along with the pros and cons of duty gear placement.
