Instructor’s Guide: Emergency Management Exercises: From Response to Recovery
Exercises are a mainstay in the field of emergency management and business continuity planning. Although many organizations conduct exercises, and the organizers may be emergency management/business continuity subject matter experts, they do not excel in the discipline of designing and conducting the actual exercise – which means they simply don’t get the best results out of their effort.
This comprehensive and highly interactive course provides everything that an instructor needs to teach – and inspire – students to create great exercises. The course begins with a “silly little question”: Why are we doing this? What seems like a simple query is actually one of the keys to get the most out of every exercise design. The course then peels back the mysteries of the design process with the goal of creating the best experience possible.
Whether your students are developing simple tabletop exercises or working on a full-scale extravaganza that resembles a Hollywood movie, this course will provide you and them with gems of wisdom to make their exercises powerful and pack a punch. An internationally recognized expert in exercise design, Regina Phelps whispers her secrets into your ear week by week to ensure your course success.
