Short Courses

In addition to its online, accredited, Participatory Disaster Risk Management (PDRM) program, TorqAid offers seven Short Courses (SCs). The link to this program is given below.


The seven SCs on offer are:
SC1:    The Disaster Risk Management Cycle (DRMC) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) diagrams, and their application to to a combination of floods and tropical storms; earthquakes and tsunamis; and drought

SC2:   Australian bushfires, and psychosocial stress related to disasters

SC3:   The Rohingya humanitarian situation in Bangladesh

SC4:   The Ten Seed Technique (TST) as a fabulous, practical, ranking tool

SC5:   Covid-19 and Risk Management

SC6:   The DRR diagram and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

SC7:    Aspirations for, and challenges of, positive progress this year relating to Climate Change

These SCs are designed for a combination of stakeholders, principally global or Australian humanitarian/development practitioners, and secondary/teriary students. Sessions can be delivered either as one hour online (eg Zoom) training sessions, or, social distancing requirements notwithstanding, as one hour face-to-face lessons.
