Leaders from government agencies, national associations, and the private sector are at the forefront of our nation’s emergency preparedness mission. In a rapidly changing environment, leaders need continuous education and professional development to cultivate a more thorough understanding of emerging issues, public policy debates, and the underlying causes of the hazards and threats we face. Recognizing this, the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS), in conjunction with the FEMA Technological Hazards Division (THD), developed the Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Executive Education Program to provide government and industry leaders with the tools and resources they need to think and act strategically about off-site fixed nuclear facility emergency preparedness. The CHDS REP program offerings bring local, state, federal, tribal, territorial, and industry partners together to enhance their critical thinking and better understand their mission’s complexity.

All three program offerings boast unique characteristics that set this program apart from other training opportunities:

  • All in-residence sessions and field-delivered seminars are conducted and facilitated by nationally recognized speakers, instructors, and subject matter experts.
  • Each offering is delivered in a highly interactive setting where participants engage in open discussion addressing critical issues, including strategic and crisis communications, changes in the REP program environment, and evolving threats.
  • Each offering uniquely engages professional networking and relationship-building between executives across disciplines, agencies, and levels of government for future REP collaboration and partnerships.
  • Unlike training, the CHDS REP Program offerings provide executive education and leadership development.
