The Shelter Operations Simulation establishes an environment for participants to practice the knowledge they learned after completing the Shelter Fundamentals course and as a refresher for more seasoned Shelter Volunteers and Managers. It is a “hands on” skills-based simulation.
In addition, a select number of shelter manager candidates are given the opportunity to practice the knowledge they learned after completing the Shelter Management course as skills station leads.
Courses were designed to be taken together and attending the Institute in it's entirety will ensure maximum value.
