COST: There is no cost to coordinate or deliver this course.


The Exercise Design course focuses on applying techniques in development, conduct and evaluation, for students to have the ability and understanding of how a comprehensive exercise program is used to target and improve critical emergency plans, procedures and capabilities within all four phases of emergency management. This course conforms to capabilities-based exercise evaluation outlined in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP).
