The Sports and Special Events Incident Management course develops athletic department staffs, facility management personnel, campus public safety personnel, emergency response supervisors, and others involved in sports and special event management to better prepare for, manage, and recover from incidents that could occur during a sporting event or other special event.

The course concludes with a practical application, role- play exercise that is customized to the area in which the course is delivered.
