Course Description

Participants will learn how to create effective training plans for their agencies and jurisdictions using a whole community approach. Participants will learn a jurisdiction training assessment process in which an integrated assessment team creates a jurisdictional profile and evaluates the jurisdiction's ability to fully implement their Emergency Operations Plans (EOP). Participants will then be able to identify and catalog training goals and identify ways to meet them by prioritizing training efforts, developing improvement plans, and implementing a course of action.

The program is scheduled for 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM each day (16 hours). Participants are requested to bring a computer, tablet, or other electronic device. A lunch period of 1 hour will be provided along with regular breaks throughout the program.
