This course, funded by the National Training and Education Division (NTED) within DHS/FEMA's National Preparedness Directorate, enhances the basic Threat and Risk Assessment course (MGT- 310) by teaching participants how to apply all phases of the DHS/FEMA risk management process to jurisdictional critical infrastructure and key resources. Through lectures, discussions and classroom activities, participants learn methods to identify and prioritize risks from all hazards, assess vulnerabilities, estimate consequences, and use equipment, training and exercises to mitigate risk. Multidisciplinary particpant teams visit and assess facilities selected by the host jurisdiction, determining risks, vulnerabilities, consequences and mitigation options specific to their assigned site. Teams then document their findings using a software assessment tool, develop an action plan, and present their results to the class.
