WHAT WE DO
Designing and Delivering Training and Exercise Programs That Improve Safety and Security
Drawing on nearly 30 years of exercise and training experience, IEM has worked with both civilian and military protection agencies. Our exercises serve as hands-on training for responders and decision makers. By measuring the difference between expected and actual capability, IEM exercises pinpoint necessary changes to plans, procedures, policies, training, and equipment so improvements in preparedness can be made.
IEM ensures that exercise and training outcomes are always linked to critical program and mission goals. We have extensive experience developing and delivering exercises and training for mission-critical systems and processes. From tabletop and functional to command-post and full-scale, IEM’s exercises and training courses are consistent and compliant with DHS Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) guidelines.
IEM has particular expertise in developing exercise and training programs to meet specific outcomes or performance measures related to core competencies. Our mature exercise and training development processes allow us to design and produce exercise and training materials accurately under short suspense. Rather than just transferring information, our exercise and training courses are designed to ensure that students actively participate in developing functional knowledge.
