Course Description

US FlagParticipants will learn how to create effective training plans for their agencies and jurisdictions using a whole community approach. Participants will learn a jurisdiction training assessment process in which an integrated assessment team creates a jurisdictional profile and evaluates the jurisdiction’s ability to fully implement their Emergency Operations Plans (EOP). Participants will then be able to identify and catalog training goals and identify ways to meet them by prioritizing training efforts, developing improvement plans, and implementing a course of action.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for MGT-418 Readiness: Training Identification and Preparedness Planning course #78403.


There are no prerequisites for this course.

Enrollment Requirements

Participants must be U.S. citizens. A FEMA Student ID is required to register for and participate in any training provided by FEMA agencies.

Course Completion Requirements

Participants are required to score a 70% or better on the Post-Test and attend 80% of the course hours in order to receive a course certificate of completion.

Participant Must Provide

  • A photo identification on the first day of class. See the Participant Handbook for approved forms of identification and additional guidelines.

Attendance Requirements

Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. The course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.

Participants in a TCOLE credit course must complete the class in its entirety to receive TCOLE credit.

Participants for this course should have significant expertise in their functional areas and in training management. They should have regular interaction with other response agencies and disciplines, some level of decision-making authority within their agencies, and general regional knowledge of the community.

Participants should have knowledge of the jurisdictional emergency response plan and mutual aid agreements as well as discipline-specific internal training processes. Experience with data collection and interpreting reporting tools is important, as is the ability to create an operational calendar at the conclusion of the assessment.

Although knowledge of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Incident Command System (ICS), and the whole community approach is beneficial, it is not required for this course. The target audience is broadened by the whole community approach, though not all members of the private sector may have been exposed to ICS and NIMS. This course will identify the training needs of the whole community and use ICS and NIMS as the main training vehicle for integration and interoperability. 

It is recommended that participants take the FEMA independent study course:
