Basic EOC Training Materials - Free 


One of the many challenges facing all jurisdictions during the COVID-19 response is the ongoing need to staff Emergency Operations Centers and other coordination centers with trained personnel. We are all facing long-term sustained operations with no outside relief anticipated.

Cal OES and the California Specialized Training Institute recognize jurisdictions at every level have an immediate need to train new staff to build their EOC cadres. To help you meet that need, we have placed basic EOC training materials online. These materials can be downloaded and used by your own experienced staff to provide initial training for new EOC assignees. We are also working to develop interactive online courses that individuals can access directly and complete at their convenience. We will announce those as soon as they are available.

 

Available EOC Course Materials:

CSTI LOGISTICS
CSTI PLANNING & INTELLIGENCE 
CSTI FINANCE & ADMINISTRATION 
CSTI OPERATIONS 
CSTI MANAGEMENT
CSTI STANDARDIZED EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM INTRODUCTION (SEMS G606)

Welcome to the California Specialized Training Institute (CSTI). Under the reorganization of Cal OES, CSTI has evolved into a statewide enterprise with responsibility for supporting training, exercises and education in wide variety of areas including but not limited to; emergency management, public safety, homeland security, hazardous materials, disaster recovery and crisis communications. CSTI is no longer just defined by the San Luis Obispo campus you may be familiar with, but is being developed into a more holistic resource to support your needs whether you are a government, non-profit or private sector organization.

As we move forward you will see CSTI further develop its capabilities to support you by utilizing collaboration, leveraging of funding and resources, partnerships, relevant technology, current information and subject matter expertise in order to enhance capabilities at the individual, organizational, agency and jurisdictional level, whether you participate online, at our facilities or yours.

Our focus is on facilitating and or providing the best possible solutions in training, exercise, and education with an eye on building capabilities, utilizing an all-hazards, total resource approach.
