Open Public Safety Institute
OPS Institute’s goal is to disrupt and change the way education is delivered by enabling anyone to teach and take courses. We operate through a community and democratic approach to learning. Just as blogging changed the publishing industry, and downloadable music changed the music industry, we are significantly changing the terrain of education and training.
Our courses are built on a platform that allows both students and instructors to fully engage in their classes no matter what type of web-enabled device they are on. Instructors can use video, PowerPoint, PDF, and audio files to build their courses, or the components of our LMS.
Students can take courses in Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement, Homeland Security, Emergency Management, or improve their skills through our General Studies Academy. All courses provide the ability to seek certification, continuing education, and college credit through our learning partners. All for a significant fraction of attending a traditional college, academy, or university.
Courses vary from free to fee-based depending on the instructor and class. However, it is the community that drives the courses. All have an “open-book” to ratings, costs, comments, and background on the instructor. Students can make an educated decision to taking a course. You should have full information and no surprises when you sign up. As we expand out to other mobile platforms the free market approach will be central to our growth.
