Day 1 was a basic LAST class, with a working lunch. Day 2 covered Funeral Planning, PSOB 2.0 and Organizational Management/Team Deployment in the morning. After a working lunch, the CAST (and designated co-CAST) were invited for a working session with the training team to help identify more specific ways to support your team and enhance the program.
