In an effort to improve Continuity of Operations (COOP) training, FEMA NCP has decided to change the delivery method from Independent Study (IS) to classroom only for the following courses. Student and Instructor evaluations have highlighted the lack of peer interaction and the lack of contribution to the larger body of knowledge through shared experiences with IS courses.
Effective 1 October 2016 – The following Independent Study (IS) courses will no longer be available online:
IS 524 – Continuity Planner’s Workshop
IS 526 – Mission Essential Functions (MEF) Workshop
IS 545 – Reconstitution Planning Workshop
IS 548 – Continuity Program Manager’s Course
IS 550 – Continuity Exercise Design Course
IS 551 – Devolution Planning Workshop
The courses listed above will be conducted in a classroom setting only.
In the interest of making classroom courses more available, we are lowering the minimum number of students for local delivery from 15 to 8.
