The Emergency Preparedness (EP) Basic Training is intended to establish knowledge of federal EP regulations and the ability to identify circumstances of noncompliance with individual federal regulations for each affected provider and supplier type. Compliance with EP regulations is a factor for facilities’ eligibility for funding from CMS. This 17-hour, self-paced training can bolster proficiency with conducting EP surveys and understanding of how the EP regulations overlap across multiple provider types. The course is geared for surveyors but has been made available to the public for provider/supplier education. The course updates reflect the 2019 Burden Reduction changes, as well as additional guidance and clarifications, to include preparedness for emerging infectious diseases.
