REP Factsheet (pdf)

Government agency, national association and private sector leaders are at the forefront of our nation’s emergency preparedness mission. In a rapidly changing environment, these leaders need continuous education and professional development to cultivate a more thorough understanding of emerging issues and public policy debates, and the underlying causes of the hazards and threats we face.

Recognizing this, Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS), in conjunction with the FEMA Technological Hazards Division, developed the Radiological Emergency Preparedness Executive Education Program to provide government and industry leaders with the tools and resources they need to think and act strategically in this area. The program allows local, state, federal and industry partners to enhance their critical thinking and develop a better understanding of the complexity of their program and improve their organizational development.

The course is designed to accommodate the busy schedules of participating executives and will not require the workload of traditional graduate-level education programs. Participants must commit to attending the entire session.

The program is fully sponsored for invitee’s. This includes travel, per diem, and lodging in accordance with federal travel regulations. This course is sponsored by FEMA’s Technological Hazards Division and is only open to their invitees.

The program will be conducted in a highly interactive setting, including:

  • Professional networking in a multi-jurisdiction, multi-discipline environment
  • Seminar discussion-driven delivery in which participants are involved in the evaluation of critical issues
  • Activities, case studies, and scenario planning that will establish the predicate for class and small-group discussions
  • Discussions centered around strategic and crisis communications as well as discussion on changes in the REP program environment and evolving threats

The course will be conducted over a four-day period, beginning on Monday morning and concluding Thursday evening.
