Exercise Control & Simulation Training (L0050)
September 22 @ 8:00 am - September 23 @ 5:00 pm
Hosted by the Washington Emergency Management Division (EMD) and FEMA Region X, this 2-day course is designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of Exercise Control and Simulation. Completion of this course will help prepare you to design and conduct exercises consistent with the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) doctrine. The use of HSEEP, in line with the National Preparedness Goal and the National Preparedness System, supports efforts across the whole community that improve our national capacity to build, sustain, and deliver Core Capabilities.
Exercise control maintains exercise scope, pace and integrity during conduct under safe conditions. Key elements of exercise control include controller staffing, structure, training, communications, and safety and security. Exercise simulation uses the Master Scenario Events List (MSEL) and related instruments to enhance the exercise experience.
This course is designed to demonstrate and provide you the opportunity to develop exercise control and simulation tools in a no-fault/low stress environment while working with your peers.
