Training and Exercise Needs Assessment
The 2011-2012 Training and Exercise Needs Assessment Focuses on the Public Health Preparedness Capabilities National Standards. Specific training is identified as a resource element required to perform a function within each capability. Priority training is found in six capability areas. The training needs data was extracted from Florida's capability teams self assessments conducted in October 2011. Based on this data, six training subject areas were identified with unmet training needs.
The 2010 Training and Exercise Needs Assessment reviewed 15 operational plans with the lead planners. The data compiled on training for each plan identified references to training by title, subject, and intended audience, level of training, availability, delivery and last update. This was compared against the existing resources in the Learning Management System. From this validated needs assessment new priorities were identified that build on strategies from the previous year.
