Continuity of Operations and Planning

HLS 6080 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Seeks to enable students to develop and implement continuity of operations (COOP) plans. COOP is a federal initiative, required by presidential directive, to ensure that executive branch departments and agencies are able to continue to perform their essential function under a broad range of circumstances. Today’s changing threat environment and recent emergencies have increased the need for COOP capabilities and plans. Topics include what COOP is and why it is important; how COOP differs from continuity of government (COG); the roles and responsibilities of key players in COOP planning; and family support measures to take in case of COOP implementation.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
