Emergency plans must then undergo reality checks in the form of testing, training, and exercises. This course provides you with the sets of tools and cases that lead to knowledge in structuring assessments, testing/validating, training, and planning exercises applicable inside any specific organization. Understand the concepts of emergency preparedness and planning, the resources available to planners, the regulatory environment that planners must consider when drafting plans, and the multitudes of threats planners must factor into the planning process.
