Program Description: The Master Exercise Practitioner Program is a series of two classroom courses (E0132 and E0133) focusing on advanced program management, exercise design and evaluation practices in each phase of the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP). A MEPP Capstone exercise project is required within one (1) year after the completion of E0133.
MEPP candidates work within a collaborative environment on exercise design challenges and establish a network of peers. Candidates are assigned to an Exercise Planning Team where they are to demonstrate their expertise at all levels of exercise design and conduct through in-class teach backs and the individual MEPP Capstone Project.
MEPP is designed for mid-level exercise practitioners with a minimum of three
(3) years’ experience in an Emergency Management (EM) exercise design. Participants refine and practice skills critical to performing the phases of the HSEEP cycle, such as exercise program management, Master Scenario Events List (MSEL) writing and evaluation data analysis.
Candidates apply the key learning concepts from the MEPP curriculum relative to their organizations and their own jurisdictional environments.
