New NRM Recruitment Flyer
The attached flyer was developed in 2010 as
part of a HQ Human Resources overhaul of the recruitment package from many
years ago. This flyer can be used at job fairs, college/university
recruitment programs or as a way to inform the public what we are looking
for in young men and women looking for careers in the Federal service. The
flyer can be downloaded and reproduced locally. Kudos go to Adam Tarplee
and Renee Stacey for their hard work and dedication in updating this
outstanding recruitment tool.

Safe Self CD
The Natural Resource Management Career Development Steering Committee, (NRMCDSC), contracting with Tec-Masters Incorporated, through the Corps of Engineer's Huntsville Training Center, developed the CD-ROM-based, exportable training module titled Safe Self. This exportable training module was designed to meet some of the requirements established by EC 1130-2-213, "Visitor Assistance Training." The introductory letter from HQ introduces Safe Self and provides guidance for its use.
Safe Self is modeled after Dr. George Thompson's tactical training titled Verbal Judo. Doctor Thompson was closely involved in the development of the product, working closely with Corps subject matter experts (SME) Bill Jackson and Chris Arthur to ensure correct content. A sub-committee of the NRMCDSC Greg Mollenkopf (Chair), North Atlantic Division; Valerie Krenicky, South Atlantic Division; and Gary Pelton, New England Division coordinated the development and distribution. Safe Self is a new concept in exportable products, designed to be updateable and also outcome-based. The product is outcome-based in the sense that the user must complete the modules and pass a final exam before credit is given for completion of the course. Safe Self also comes in two versions, one for large group presentation and one for individual learning opportunities. The large group presentation format is identical except that there is no testing at the end.
In late summer 2000, at least one copy of Safe Self was mailed to each project office, District and Division office. A limited number of copies remain and may be requested by filling out the form.
As the Corps upgrades to Windows 2000 as an operating system, QuickTime 5 needs to be downloaded for Safe Self to run properly. QuickTime 3 in conjunction with Windows 2000 will not run the CD.
