The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness will be sponsoring two deliveries of a two-day training course titled, “Disaster Management for Electric Power Systems” (MGT-345). The Texas Engineering Extension Service, a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium, will deliver the training.
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
This course provides participants with information specific to preparing for, protecting against, responding to, recovering from, and mitigating against a threatened or actual natural disaster, an act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster affecting electric power facilities and systems. During this course, participants will be guided through discussions and exercise that will assist them in improving security against physical damage, organizational disruption, and control system vulnerability; enhancing the electric power systems ability to plan, prevent, detect, respond, and restore their facilities in emergency situations and developing an understanding and appreciation for working with the media.
This course is for participants interested in obtaining the TEEX Infrastructure Disaster Management Certificate. The certificate is for professionals who wish to enrich their personal knowledge and skills related to critical infrastructure disaster management. Participants can request to receive a Series Certificate once all four courses (MGT-317, MGT-341, MGT-345, and MGT-343) are completed.
