Delivering Innovative Results
April 30, 2013, Houston, TX - ECS is pleased to announce that we were selected as an exhibitor at this year's first annual Center for Offshore Safety (COS) Forum held in Houston, TX. The forum was a two-day event on April 29th and 30th, 2013. Representing the company were Waymon Armstrong and Hayley Corbett, who gave the forum attendees a sneak peek at the Crisis Repsonse Simulation (CRS) developed by ECS. CRS is a web-based simulation that allows corporate leadership and key personnel in an organization to exercise their critical thinking and decision making skills during intense, multi-role, event-driven simulations of crises and disasters.

The Combating Traffic in Persons course was chosen first because it is high-volume: all Department of Defense military and civilian personnel must take the training, which takes about an hour to complete. There were 36,000 course completions last year.
The virtual world test will be conducted in the spring, before final evaluation by the Office of the Secretary of...
