National Training and Education Division

The National Training and Education Division (NTED) provides tailored training to enhance the capacity of state and local jurisdictions to prepare for, prevent, deter, respond to, and recover safely and effectively from potential manmade and natural catastrophic events, including terrorism.

NTED training conforms to nationally recognized standards and adheres to the principles of both adult learning theory, including problem-based learning, and instructional system design. In addition, training developed under the auspices of NTED undergoes a rigorous validation process before delivery and is continuously assessed while being delivered to the public. NTED training is increasingly being tested and evaluated through state and local exercises to enhance further development of training courses.
