Exercise Control

Hours: 8
Tuition: $149

Program Information:

The success or failure of a full-scale or functional exercise is dependent on the skill of the exercise control team. From the SimCell to the individual Controller, knowledge of their responsibility and authority are critical to the overall success of the exercise. The full day Exercise Control Course will ensure that participants understand the role of an exercise controller, the information needs of controllers in advance of and during the exercise, and control concepts. Because participants will guide the actual performance of a simulated disaster response, this course is held only twice per year in conjunction with the COD Full Scale Exercise. Successful course participants will be offered the opportunity to apply all course concepts and receive feedback into their participation.  This course is appropriate for all levels of staff including program volunteers in local exercise programs.

Topics Include:

  • HSEEP Control Overview

  • Role of the Controller

  • Controller Duties

  • Controlling the Action

  • Problem Solving

  • Sticking to the Mission

**Cancellations for this class must be received by SLEA 35 days prior to the start of the program in order to avoid being billed!**
