Each year, thousands of first responders and emergency planners are trained to use programs in the CAMEO® software suite. CAMEO training is offered by many different groups, including the Department of Homeland Security, which offers Weapons of Mass Destruction training for first responders through the Louisiana State University's National Center for Biomedical Research and Training. To find out about other upcoming CAMEO suite classes, go to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) CAMEO site's CAMEO Training Calendar.
CAMEO in Schools
Several schools are using the CAMEO programs to teach students about emergency response and planning. For example,
- Salem State University offers graduate and undergraduate geography courses that use MARPLOT® and CAMEOfm. In the graduate course, students develop integrated MARPLOT-CAMEOfm systems for communities.
- University of Connecticut offers an undergraduate course that uses CAMEOfm, CAMEO Chemicals, and ALOHA® to look at mathematical modeling in the environment.
- Massachusetts Maritime Academy and University of Pittsburgh also offer classes that use CAMEO programs.
