REDOX

 

WHAT IS REDOX?

  • REDOX is CRDF Global’s unique, innovative hybrid training model.
  • This model combines pre-recorded modules, live expert discussion sessions, and in-person exercises with leading CBRN security experts and scientists. 
  • Using a customized e-learning platform, REDOX maximizes participant engagement, reinforces knowledge and skills through applied learning, and allows us to access regions where travel is impractical or cost-prohibitive.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

REMOTE TRAINING

  • We partner with diverse, highly-qualified CBRN security experts and in-country colleagues to develop training curricula, materials, and knowledge assessments for each target audience.
  • Our team professionally records and edits expert presentation videos, subtitles and translates them into the local language, and adds them to the REDOX library.
  • CRDF Global launches the online portion of the customized training on the REDOX e-learning platform, which participants complete at their own pace.

EXPERT DISCUSSION

  • Throughout the online training, participants submit questions to the international subject matter experts and engage with each other through the REDOX discussion board.
  • In-country partners host live expert discussion sessions (two- to three-hours each) mid-way through the training for participants at convenient, centralized locations.
  • Experts answer questions from participants via web-conference and address topics, concerns, and vulnerabilities specific to their institutions.

ON-SITE EXCERCISES

  • At the conclusion of the training, in-country partners bring participants together a final time for one day of practical tabletop exercises, mock assessments, hands-on demonstrations, or red team simulations to apply the knowledge and skills gained.
  • International experts guide participants via web-conference along with local partners, lead discussion, and conduct a final debrief session.
  • Following the exercises, participants complete action plans and evaluation surveys, receive training certificates, and engage in ongoing dialogue through the REDOX platform.

WHERE DOES REDOX WORK?

 

Everywhere.

  • The REDOX model is designed for global deployment and is especially useful for regions where travel is impractical or cost-prohibitive.
  • High-quality translation and interpretation ensure that the client can reach the widest range of audiences.
  • To overcome internet connectivity issues, the REDOX e-learning platform can be used where network bandwidth is low. 
  • In addition to the online platform, CRDF Global and local partners distribute all training material via flash drive, and provide phone and SMS-based participation options for the live expert sessions.

 

CONTINUOUSLY EXPANDING REDOX LIBRARY, CONTINUOUSLY SHRINKING COSTS

 

  • With each REDOX training that CRDF Global conducts, the client-owned library of recorded CBRN security content grows.
  • Since REDOX is modular, the client can deploy various combinations of trainings for different audiences at a moment’s notice.
  • Over time, REDOX generates significant cost savings as modules are already recorded, translated, and customized for particular regions and sectors.

 

 


 

WHY DID CRDF GLOBAL LAUNCH REDOX?

  • We strive to deliver high-impact, low-cost, and sustainable CBRN training solutions to our clients, and we developed REDOX specifically to meet these objectives.
  • There is growing interest among our international partners in innovative engagements, as demonstrated by the success of our previous webinar programs.
  • We have staff and consultants in education and instructional design dedicated to maximizing learning outcomes.
  • Our access to international experts across the globe – from diverse industrial, academic, health, and security backgrounds – is best utilized through this hybrid model.
