Safer Class is a set of COVID-19 mitigation protocols designed to significantly reduce the risk of in-person training events. The protocols meet or exceed CDC guidelines. They are evidence-based and proven to work by our own experience working with IMTs in the COVID-19 environment.

MCS can continue to deliver an in-person experience with minimal disruption. Participants will continue to feel like they are immersed in the unique simulated learning environment of “Costa Ricardo.” (In fact, this current pandemic fits into a “Costa Ricardo” problem set perfectly!)

Our DHS/NWCG Leadership courses (L-180, L-280, L-380, L-381, L-481 & L-580) as well as our Intent-Based Planning and Luck Runs Out courses will continue to provide your people the unique opportunity to develop their leadership skills in abnormal conditions.

Our Safer Class services are available at no additional charge.
