Emergency Management - Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program


DESCRPTION:The Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Training Course is a newly revamped, intermediate-level training course that incorporates exercise guidance and best practices from the HSEEP Volumes I-V.  Throughout the course, participants will learn about topics including exercise program management, design and development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning.

The HSEEP Training Course is an interactive course that allows participants to share personal lessons learned while gaining practical experience. In addition to the instructor led presentations, the course includes small group activities, videos, group discussions, and introductions to HSEEP-related initiatives such as technology (e.g., HSEEP Toolkit) and CORE capabilities-based planning. This blended approach will give participants hands-on experience that readily translates to real-world exercise responsibilities. Activities include creating exercise documentation, conducting exercise planning conferences and briefings, and practicing exercise evaluation.

The course has been developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) using input from federal partners, subject matter experts, and state/local representatives.

Because the HSEEP Training Course is an intermediate-level course, participants should come with a basic understanding of exercise design and HSEEP terminology.  Therefore, participants are required to complete Independent Study IS-120A, An Introduction to Exercises and IS-130, Exercise Evaluation and Improvement Planning.  The IS-120A and IS-130 courses should take approximately 2 hours to complete.  These courses can be found by clicking here.
