The EPC in Scotland

At the EPC we recognise that Scotland's resilience community are looking for training that can be delivered in Scotland to meet the needs of a wide range of partners.

So, we have consulted with our partners in Scotland and they have suggested a number of training courses which are highlighted below. We expect to expand in the future, but what we offer will always complement the training provided by our partners and not complete with them.

This selection of courses is delivered in partnership with:

  • Scottish Resilience Development Service (ScoRDS)
  • Scottish Multi-Agency Resilience Training & Exercise Unit (SMARTEU)
  • Emergency Planning Society (Scotland)

Key benefits of our training:

  • They will be delivered by trainers who really understand the Scottish situation;
