    • Reviewing and evaluating national curricula and troubleshooting problems and issues pertinent to FEMA’s education and training program.
    • Providing leadership, advice and guidance throughout FEMA and serving as one of the key staff in the agency training program.
    • Planning, organizing, and carrying out studies, the results of which have a broad impact on a large number of education and training staff and students, a service-wide technical training program, and in FEMA’s education and training programs.
