EPS provides a full range of services related to training, including training needs assessments; and instructional design, development, delivery, and evaluation. We utilize the industry-standard ADDIE Model of Instructional Design for all instructional design projects. We pay special attention to the application of Bloom’s Taxonomy to ensure that training objectives are created and accomplished at the proper level of competency desired for learners at the conclusion of the training.
We have particular expertise in the professional development of training materials, such as participant guides, presentations, and job aids to support learning and the application of learning. Our processes and documents meet the standards of DHS’ National Training and Education Division (NTED) to ensure grant compliance.
EPS has special expertise in conducting Training Needs Assessments, which are a unique type of assessment focused on the identification of training needs among identified stakeholders within a jurisdiction or organization. EPS conducts training needs assessments within defined frameworks such as DHS’ Core Capabilities or the DHHS Public Health Preparedness and Response Capabilities. The research and discovery process is typically conducted through a series of interviews, surveys, and document reviews.
"Emergency Preparedness Solutions (EPS) did a great job in understanding what we as an organization wanted to accomplish and then they executed to detail on the objectives we were testing. From Concept and Objectives Meeting through exercise design and execution to After Action Review/Improvement, Emergency Preparedness Solutions excelled in all phases. Our exercise participants were completely happy with the conduct of our exercises, the professionalism of the EPS staff, and the value they received in the cost of the exercises. I look forward to working with Emergency Preparedness Solutions in future exercises!”
