Training Providers

NTED draws upon a diverse group of training providers, also referred to as training partners, to develop and deliver NTED approved training courses. These training providers include the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC), and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), among others.

National Domestic Preparedness Consortium

The NDPC is a partnership of several nationally recognized organizations whose membership is based on the urgent need to address counter-terrorism preparedness needs of the nation's emergency first responders within the context of chemical, biological, radiological, and explosive WMD hazards.
