Searching the Marketplace

Courses in the FirstForward Marketplace may be found by entering simple keywords. These search terms are used to match against course titles, course descriptions, topic areas, class locations, and the name of the vendor providing the training.

You may further refine the keyword search by including special commands:

  • To match the beginning and end of a word, include * in the middle of a keyword as wildcard (e.g., crim*s)
  • To match a specific phrase, add double quotes (e.g., "in the field")
  • To require words, add + before the word or phrase (e.g., +enforcement)
  • To exclude words, add - before the word or phrase (e.g., -structure)

Except when an exact match is required, the Marketplace search will attempt to match similar words, including partial matches and some misspellings.

Course Information

Hate Crimes: Recognition & Reporting was developed in partnership with the Arlington, Texas, Police Department through the Collaborative Reform Initiative Technical Assistance Center (CRI-TAC). This one-day training is intended to enhance law enforcement’s response to hate crimes. Recognizing and reporting incidents, addressing the needs of victims, and building community trust are foundations which play a pivotal role in a successful hate crimes investigation.

Learning objectives: (1) Define hate crime and hate incident, (2) Analyze national historical events that remain relevant and contribute to present day hate crimes, (3) Compare and contrast the specific protected classes involved in hate crimes investigations, (4) Identify characteristics of hate crime offenders, and (5) Conduct a preliminary hate crime investigation to include identification of bias crime indicators, common victim responses and needs, collection of testimonial evidence, accurate reporting, and actions to build community trust.

Course delivery methods consist of lectures, facilitated discussions, group exercises, participant led activities, and case studies.

What is external training?

Most vendors publish their online and classroom courses in a way that allows FirstForward to process enrollments. This includes purchase of online courses that can be assigned and completed on this website and student registrations that reserve seats in a particular class.

Some approved vendors are granted permission to also publish courses as external training. Such courses can be discovered on the FirstForward Marketplace, but all purchase, enrollment and tracking of course completion is managed on the vendor's remote website. External training will appear in the Marketplace like other training, but will link to the website where the purchase takes place.

Because course completion is tracked elsewhere, FirstForward will not be able to automatically include external training on your professional credentials. The student or the vendor providing the course will need to enter that completion manually.

Course License Options

The FirstForward Marketplace offers different licensing options available to course vendors. Each course may be offered for purchase under one or more of these license options:

A course purchased with a single-view license will be accessible only once. A member may restart or resume the course while in progress, but will no longer be able to view course material once the course is completed.

A course purchased with a one-year subscription license will be accessible for 365 days. A member may restart, resume or retake the course until one year after the purchase date.

Access to multiple courses can be purchased at once by subscribing to a course bundle offered by a vendor. All courses included in the bundle are available to take on demand for one year, allowing you the freedom to choose which topics are most important and relevant to your profession. Your subscription will allow you access to new courses as they are published and added to the course bundle.
