Primary Core Capability: Planning

This advanced, performance-based course will provide learners with the ability to perform specific skills and tasks aligned with the skillsets needed for planning support, leading to knowledge that will enable personnel to support EOC planning, no matter the organizational structure, incident level, or role. This will enable EOC leaders to understand the importance of multiple EOC positions and responsibilities, gathering and analyzing data, maintaining continuity of the organization, and delivering information to the appropriate agencies and individuals, as well as the confidence in making decisions to protect life and property.

For additional course information, including contact hours, please see the National Preparedness Catalog.
