Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Training Course
The HSEEP Training Course incorporates exercise guidance and best practices from the HSEEP volumes. Throughout the course, participants will learn about exercise-related topics including 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 and best practices while gaining practical experience. The course also provides overviews of HSEE-related initiatives such as technology (e.g., HSEEP Toolkit) and capabilities-based planning (e.g., Target Capabilities List). This blended approach gives participants hands-on experience that readily translates to real-world exercise skills. Activities include creating exercise documentation, conducting exercise planning conferences and briefings, and practicing exercise evaluation.
