Laboratory Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning Course

Laboratory Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning Course

Description

Continuity of Operations (COOP) plans ensure continued performance of essential functions under a broad range of circumstances. The Laboratory Continuity of Operations (COOP) Planning Course is designed to provide guidance and the tools necessary for the development of laboratory continuity plans. A COOP plan is a living document and will likely need to be revised over time. Since COOP planning can vary based on need, this course will outline one scenario.

This basic-level eLearning course will provide the purpose and components of a laboratory COOP plan. Topics covered include planning objectives and considerations that apply when developing a COOP plan, identifying factors to consider when selecting alternate work facilities, and maintenance cycle and revisions of a COOP plan.
