the EXODUS Training Workshops!

Having an emergency sustainment system, disaster "kit" or "being prepared" is only part of the systematic approach to emergency preparedness and disaster response. Training is truly the critical element that bonds the prepared individual together with emergency equipment, supplies and provisions and the knowledge as well as the skills to use them in a particular emergency or disaster situation. ICE PACK® training developers and instructors have created a series of emergency preparedness and disaster response instructional training programs, workshops and seminars, to increase your knowledge, skills and abilities.

Our training programs are conducted at ICE PACK's Central Virginia headquarters facility or on-site at your location. ICE PACK training programs are developed in consonance with generally accepted practices of adult education to provide observable and measureable improvements in emergency preparedness and disaster response capability. Programs are conducted for trainers/instructors, employees, staff members and prepared individuals. If you have a unique emergency preparedness and disaster response training requirement please contact us. We look forward to learning how we can assist you and/or your organization.
