Disclaimer NOTE: The following is subject to change based on the FEMA HSEEP revision which is expected to be released early 2020. The course duration, description, structure, etc. including the course prerequisite are all ‘tentative’ unless advised otherwise by NJDOH-TEU. You must attend all three days to get the HSEEP Certificate. Cost: Free to attend. Target audience: Healthcare and public health sector emergency preparedness personnel: all emergency management and emergency responders also welcome. Class size limited to 40 students. About the course: HSEEP provides a set of guiding principles for exercise programs, as well as a common approach to exercise program management, design and development, conduct, evaluation, and improvement planning. HSEEP exercise and evaluation doctrine is flexible, adaptable, and is for use by stakeholders across the whole community and is applicable for exercises across all mission areas. In addition, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) grant guidance for the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) program and the Healthcare Preparedness Program (HPP) require all grant recipients (including sub-grantees) to be trained in and use HSEEP. Training consists of a 2-day core curriculum, followed by a “hands-on” exercise on the third day. Students work through several modules and activities which describe and reinforce HSEEP exercise planning, design, conduct, and evaluation methodologies. Activities include developing exercise documentation, holding planning conferences, and honing exercise evaluation skills. A deliberate and detailed explanation of training and exercise management programs are a key component of this class. Course prerequisites: IS-120a/c: An Introduction to Exercises (mandatory and proof of completion required) IS-100: Incident Command System (Optional) General exercise experience (Optional) Continuing Education (CE): 19 contact hours/credits for NJ Public Health (PH), Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Registered Environmental Health Specialist (REHS), Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA), and Certified Assisted Living Administrator (CALA). You must be registered with NJLMN to receive all CEs.
