Effective crisis response requires that people involved in the relief operations are well-trained. At European level, it is mutually beneficial for civil protection experts to learn from each other's techniques, approaches, and training modules.

The Union Civil Protection Mechanism runs an active and comprehensive training programme, offering experts from all over Europe a deeper knowledge of the requirements of European civil protection missions. The training helps experts improve their coordination and assessment skills in disaster response.

The programme offers a wide range of courses from basic training to high-level sessions for future mission leaders. Special courses are also available, aiming to prepare for specific aspects of missions such as security training or assessments.
