Kenyon Online Learning Center Update


In June 2017, we officially launched the first module of the Kenyon Online Learning Center (KOLC). Registration invitations have been sent to all registered Team Members. If you did not receive an invitation to enroll, please email tminfo@kenyoninternational.com.

At present we have an 88% engagement rate for all Team Members who have enrolled in the program.

The KOLC is Kenyon’s solution to providing training and resources to Team Members in a timely, convenient manner. Our first module, Kenyon Orientation, provides an introduction and background on Kenyon. We are finalizing production of Module 2: Kenyon Services, which will give a more focused look at the various functions of mass fatality response management through Kenyon services.

We appreciate the feedback we have received as we continue to grow this program. Here’s what you are saying:

"I want to thank you and thank all Kenyon Team for the great job done to create this online training".
Ehab abu Hilwa

"I will say that your Kenyon Online Learning Center is very interesting and useful. Personally, it’s good to have continuous training so as not to forget what we have already learned with the possibility to control our knowledge in order to have the right reflex when it’s necessary".
Alain Wittmann

"The session was very informative and interesting as it focuses not only on the emergency services provided to the mass fatalities but also involves different assistance to the victim's family in the form of support and cooperation that helps in their reinforcement".
Mahesh Sharma

"After three decades in front-line police work, I’ve received/provided training in large-scale operations as well as serving as the incident commander in many large-scale events over the years so I feel qualified to comment on Kenyon’s Online Learning Center training. Here are my thoughts on Module 1, which I completed yesterday":

- "It was easy to log on and then enroll in the course".

- "The manner in which the course was organized was well thought out. Clearly a lot of work went into the video production of the course content".

- "The easy to follow lessons which had the right amount of photos and graphics were helpful to get a much better understanding of what Kenyon is all about".

- "The tests that were given aided me in gaining an understanding of the course content".

- "I liked the commentary by Kenyon CEO Robert A. Jensen. He came across as a caring, creditable, and sincere person. The CEO made it very clear about the difficult challenges of deployment. However, when he spoke about the enormous personal rewards of being a part of a deployment, I am now more excited then ever to have an opportunity to deploy".

- "Getting through the four lesson plans in Module 1 was not overly time consuming and was well worth my time".

- "In short, the on-line training was excellent".

Module two is scheduled for launch in mid-September. Keep an eye out for more information coming soon via email from Team Member Management.

27 Key Team Member Functions

Tying it all together with the learning center.

Kenyon has identified 27 key functions that are critical for incident response, which feed into nearly 100 different positions utilized in our mass fatality response organizational charts. These 27 positions not only help us to identify qualified Team Members for rapid response, but they also relate closely to specific learning modules in development.

Kenyon has developed specific learning modules within the Kenyon Online Learning Center (KOLC) to coincide with the various functions of a response. These courses are designed for Team Members to enhance their primary profession and apply their skills with the Kenyon approach to emergency management. We have made it easy for you to identify the key modules you could be required to take.

When all of the modules have been released, we will start monitoring the KOLC participation of the Team Members relative to the 27 key functions. For example, if you are a forensic pathologist, you will need to complete modules 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6, with the balance of the modules remaining optional.

Modules 1, 2 and 3 are required for all Team Members, while the modules coming after those will be defined by job function. However, since we are launching the modules in sequence and over time, it is our goal that all Team Members will complete all modules as they are released. More than anything, what these modules will teach you is how every part of the response works as one system – a system built to focus on the care of the survivors and their families. So even if a particular module does not apply to your expertise or role in a response, completing all of them will only aid you in better understanding the Kenyon crisis response system as a whole.

Once all modules have been published, we will inform you of any specific training required for your roles.
