Since 1989, IEc has developed and delivered training courses on the principles of effective risk communication to federal and state agencies including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Navy, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The courses include several role-play exercises as well as extensive use of videotaped material, as a means to spur discussion. In addition, we often videotape class exercises to allow participants to review and critique their performance in different situations.

Select Experience
  • IEc staff developed EPA's three-day risk communications training program and taught the course to headquarters and regional staff throughout the country.
  • For the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, IEc developed a basic and advanced course, as well as one designed specifically to assist communications with Special Populations.
  • For the Navy, IEc developed three separate versions of the course: an online version sailors can take at any time, a two-and-a-half-day Introductory Course, and a two-day Advanced Course.
  • For EPA's Evaluation Support Division, IEc developed a training course for EPA officials on the basic components of program evaluation and its use in complying with the provisions of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). The course serves as a useful primer on the GPRA and its role in effective strategic planning. IEc has provided adapted versions of the training to several EPA program offices.
