This is an intermediate-level course that provides a comprehensive overview of exercise design along with practical skill development in accordance with the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Doctrine. This course uses activities that will give participants an opportunity to interact with many of the templates and other materials that are provided by the National Exercise Division to ensure exercises are conducted in a consistent manner.
L0146 HSEEP course is delivered in a traditional classroom environment, at a local jurisdiction, and incorporates all of the same elements as the webinar version. L0146 courses are 16 hours in duration and delivered in 2 days.
It is mandatory that the participant complete all 16 hours of this course to receive full credit. Anything less will result in the participant’s need to re-register for another course and start from the beginning.
At completion of this course, students will increase awareness of the Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program Doctrine, clarify roles and responsibilities, and improve teamwork and coordination.
This course is followed by the L0105 Public Information and Warning course and both will run in the same week. Students are encouraged to sign up for both the L0146 and L0105 courses. Typically, students take the L0101 Foundations of Emergency Management course first, but the Basic Academy courses can be taken in any order.
Participants are required to have completed IS-0120.a – An Introduction to Exercises. It is also recommended that participants take IS-0130 - Exercise Evaluation and Improvement Planning.
