This course offers simulation-based training for an emergency operations center. It is absolutely essential that your organization’s leadership has confidence in and can articulate how an incident is managed at all levels: initial response, command post, emergency operations center (EOC) and executive policy group. Understanding the levels of response, triggering events that lead to the need to operationalize each level, how the levels function, communication links between each level of response and the importance of functional management (as required under NIMS) verses a committee style are critical.
This is a fast-paced course
comprised of hands-on exercises.

Business continuity is the fundamental goal of an emergency operations center. Many times CEOs, executives, managers and department heads get caught focusing their attention on the incident rather than critical elements of business continuity. Business continuity is more than maintaining the IT functions. Even a complete and up-to-date set of co-op documents does not guarantee success. An EOC team of managers supported by a trained executive policy group is critical. In a true crisis, each critical department will be competing for the same finite set of resources: these are what need to be managed.
