A glimpse inside Travel HEROES Safety Training:
This online travel safety course is comprised of six 10-15 minute teaching modules, complete with mini-games, testimonials, and an end-of-chapter assessment. As learners complete each chapter, they progressively compile a travel safety emergency plan to guide them through the steps they should take for safer international travels. The six modules are:
Geopolitical Context: Learn how to navigate State Department Consular Affairs and Overseas Security Advisory Council websites to identify country-specific warnings and alerts and ascertain their severity.
Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP): Learn the value of STEP services and how to successfully register for STEP before each international trip.
Health & Wellness: Discover resources at the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization to identify destination-specific health risks and preventive medicines to include in your plan, and vital personal medical information in mobile applications.
Geography & Housing: Learn how to build a custom Google My Map of your destination(s), featuring area-specific risks and warnings. Locate nearby hospitals, fire and police departments, embassies, airports and evacuation services, and your housing and transportation resources.
Travel Insurance: Learn the difference between trip and travel insurance, and how to determine the best insurance for your particular excursion.
Security & Communications: Increase your financial security with helpful tips and prepare to use mobile technology to contact local and international agencies and emergency contacts.
