Classes will resume Feb. 4 at the Center for Domestic Preparedness, following the end of the recent federal shutdown.

“CDP employees are excited to be back at work training the nation’s first responders,” said CDP Superintendent Tony Russell. “We look forward to resuming courses next week.”

The CDP is readying to host approximately 150 students at its McClellan campus for five courses: Framework for Healthcare Emergency Management, Hazardous Materials Operations, Strategic National Stockpile Preparedness, Emergency Medical Response Awareness for CBRNE Incidents and Healthcare Emergency Response Operations for CBRNE Incidents.  The latter two courses will be provided to nursing students exclusively from Piedmont College in Athens, Ga.

During the week, the CDP is also scheduled to conduct more than 30 courses for about 2,600 students in Michigan, New York, Ohio, California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Colorado, South Carolina and Illinois as part of its non-resident training program.
