MGT 418 Readiness: Training Identification Preparedess Planning
Course Description:
This course teaches participants how to create effective training plans for their agencies and jurisdictions. By evaluating their abilities to meet their emergency operations plan (EOP) using traditional and national preparedness tools, participants can answer the following critical readiness questions: • How prepared do we need to be? • How prepared are we? • How do we prioritize efforts to close the difference? Agencies that plan and train together are much better equipped to successfully respond together. In this course, participants learn a Jurisdiction Training Assessment Process in which an integrated assessment team creates a jurisdictional profile and evaluates their abilities to meet their EOP. Participants are then able to identify and catalog training gaps and identify ways to close them by prioritizing training efforts, developing improvement plans and implementing a course of action.
