Non-military preparedness, response and recovery missions under both Stafford Act and PL-8499 authorities require a comprehensive curriculum for expeditionary teams and response personnel. The USACE Civil Training utilizes an instructional framework that uses a knowledge base doctrine in Level One, and presents USACE doctrinal information in three units:
- Concept of Operations - This course describes the conceptual framework for USACE Civil response.
- Teams - This course outlines the Planning and Response Teams (PRTs) make-up, function, and locations.
- Tools - This course describes the tools available to responders, including ENGLInk, ACI, DTOS, and Mission Guides.
