Test, Training, and Exercise (TT&E) Development, Facilitation and
Lessons Learned

“Does each person in the organization know their role and what to do during an emergency?” and “Does each continuity or contingency plan achieve the intended result?”

Continuity training is designed to familiarize and impart necessary skills for continuation of organization essential functions. This ensures viability of continuity and contingency plans, as written. Exercises add the necessary real-world pressure to aid in verifying whether an organization’s continuity plans are capable of supporting the continued execution of essential functions throughout the duration of a continuity event.

Types of continuity exercises:

  • Checklist Validation
  • Walkthrough
  • Tabletop Exercise (TTX)/Simulation
  • Functional Exercise
  • Command Post Exercise (CPX)
  • Field Training Exercise (FTX)
  • Full-scale Exercise
