The course, based on the Preparation, Conduct and Evaluation of Exercises to Test Preparedness for a Nuclear or Radiological Emergency (EPR-EXERCISE, 2005), presents concepts, terminology and introduces a process for the preparation, conduct and evaluation of an exercise.

The five-day course targets emergency preparedness coordinators who have a key role in the organization of exercises.
