The RDPO Training and Exercise Calendar (displays best in Google Chrome) includes courses that are a considered part of the core curriculum for EOC / ECC staff, as well as courses and exercises that participating jurisdictions have opened up for registration regionally. These trainings are for emergency preparedness professionals in the region. Disaster preparedness training for citizens and volunteers is provided by the American Red Cross and the many Citizen Corps programs in the region.

The Emergency Management Work Group (REMTEC) Training Committee has developed curriculum designed to train regional EOC/ECC personnel on the essential functions of an Emergency Operations Center. Emergency Management agencies from across the Portland Urban Area have cooperated to deliver these Regional EOC Training courses to professional Emergency Managers from across the region. The Regional EOC Training classes were developed to: 1) provide a common baseline of training for EOC/ECC personnel; 2) improve collaboration between agencies; 3) and, prepare local Emergency Managers for upcoming regional exercises.
