FirstWatch and Driven Announce CAPCE Accreditation for “Driven Resilience Training”; the smartphone app using AI Technology to support mental health and wellness through resilience training.
We are honored to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Prehospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). Driven Resilience Training uses virtual coaching powered by artificial intelligence (AI). By investing just 5 minutes a day users develop measurable resilience skills. The training is customized for each user based on a research validated pre-training assessment. The system contains over 700 micro-training classes helping users build skills in everything from emotional self-control and tenacity to personal finance and better sleep.
CAPCE noted that it “found clear evidence that Driven Resilience Training not only adheres to CAPCE standards and policies but embraces and employs them. We are thoroughly impressed with the efforts you take to build quality into your educational processes.”
“This is truly an honor and a significant achievement for FirstWatch Solutions Inc,” noted Todd Stout, Founder & President, “At FirstWatch we see the emotional toll that trauma can have on emergency services personnel, either through our own experiences or those of colleagues.” “Driven Resilience Training will help prepare these dedicated professionals and prevent them from becoming additional victims to the traumatic scenes they witness every day.” “We are dedicated to building a curriculum that not only addresses both the personal and public safety demands of Emergency Medical responders, but also helping these professionals stay current with the most accredited training possible. CAPCE recognition clearly demonstrates that we’ve made that achievement a reality.”
“Our research into the neuroscience of daily microtasks showed it is a better approach to embed skills in the brain,” mentions Jurie Rossouw, founder and CEO of Hello Driven. “This is why it’s so exciting that the approach of Driven’s training aligns so well with the concept of continued competency to improve quality of care. As a habit building system, Driven helps participants to pace their training by only awarding Continuing Education credits for the daily five minute activity, emphasizing and rewarding consistent self-care every day.”
“Not only does the Driven Resilience program build important skills for EMS practitioners, the use of microtask learning represents an important innovation in the delivery of continuing education and evidence of continued competency in a very practical way,” said Mark Terry, Chief Certification Officer with the National Registry of EMTs. “With CAPCE accreditation of the program, credits earned through Driven Resilience Training can be applied to National Registry recertification and towards many state licenses. Independent accreditation by CAPCE shows that microlearning meets rigorous standards for continuing education using a novel approach.”
Driven is a research and technology organisation focused on measuring and building human resilience. We have established a peer-reviewed neuroscience-based model of resilience called the Predictive 6 Factor Resilience model, used by universities, organisations, and psychologists around the world as a comprehensive framework to understand and build resilience. We’ve created the Driven Resilience App as an online platform that uses AI to coach individuals, as well as advanced resilience courses such as High Adversity Resilience Training (HART) used by emergency responders, and Resilience First Aid (RFA) that teaches skills to proactively support resilience in others.
