The Records Emergency Preparedness and Response course is one of the two main IPER courses. We recommend taking both courses, starting with Essential Records and then this course.

The CoSA Resource Center provides links to regulations, policies, guidance, and assistance in each state and territory related to topics covered in the IPER Records Emergency Preparedness and Response (REPR) course.
The development of the IPER Records Emergency Preparedness and Response course was supported by Cooperative Agreement Number 2007-GT-T7-K022, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Preparedness Directoratee.
