Course Levels

NTED offers courses at the Awareness, Performance, and Management & Planning levels to accommodate different job functions of the first responder community.

  • Awareness level courses are designed for responders who require the skills necessary to recognize and report a potential catastrophic incident or who are likely to witness or investigate an event involving the use of hazardous and/or explosive devices.
  • Performance level courses are designed for first responders who perform tasks during the initial response to a catastrophic event, such as safeguarding the at-risk public, rescuing victims, or decontaminating victims.
  • Management & Planning level courses are designed for managers who build plans and coordinate the response to a mass consequence manmade or natural event.
