The Master Exercise Practitioner Program (MEPP) is a series of three courses (E0132, E0133 and E0136) focusing on advanced exercise design, conduct and evaluation practices in each phase of the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP). The Master Exercise Practitioner Program assigns candidates to an Exercise Planning Team where they are challenged to demonstrate their expertise at all levels of exercise design and conduct through in-class and take-home proficiency demonstrations. Candidates apply best practices and lessons learned from their organizations and experiences as well as key learning concepts from the MEPP curriculum to their exercise planning team assignments.
The three week resident program is held three times a year at FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI) in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
Candidates must complete the training requirements in this order without exception. Candidates should apply for the specific series that best fits their schedules (see schedule link at left). If accepted into the program, candidates must complete the courses with their assigned series.
