Customized Courses

Don't see what you're looking for? Let us custom-build your training.

Harkcon Academy's training and exercises design, development, and delivery services follow the Instructional System Design (ISD) process, a rigorous methodology that builds a strong foundation for high training standards. We strive to provide you with the very best training possible by designing, developing, and implementing methods that best meet your training needs.

Web-Based Training (WBT)

Harkcon Academy’s instructional systems designers, media developers, programmers, and learning management system professionals create Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM)-compliant WBT and eLearning programs for delivery within your internal network and over the Internet to desktop, laptop, mobile, and cloud-based devices. Our teams are skilled at creating training and learning performance applications delivered via a broad range of learning management systems (LMS) and products.

Instructor-Led Training (ILT)

Harkcon Academy's experts can also develop intructor-led training, which may be used for more advanced topics that require interaction between students and instructors. Classroom courses can increase efficiency by building upon what the student has already learned from previous training or online courses. The instructors who teach our courses are recognized experts in their fields.

Blended Learning

The customer's needs and course objectives are primary considerations for selecting the most appropriate training delivery method. Our training experts will work with you to determine which method would work best, given your circumstances.  Typical implementation may include web-based training, conventional classroom courses taught in residence or on-site, hands-on workshops, or extensive evaluation exercises. By blending the most effective methodologies, students may use their time more efficiently to master course material.

Workshops and Exercises

Preparedness is the key to effective response in any situation.  Harkcon Academy provides practical, hands-on application through a variety of real world workshops and exercises. Students can enhance their understanding and improve their performance through innovative situational scenarios conducted in structured and safe learning environments.

Drills and Exercise Development

Harkcon Academy's drills and exercise development capability ranges from small team drills to multi-team/multi-event full-scale exercises. Our tabletop, functional, and full-scale exercises are one of our strongest capabilities. Our ability to link exercises to training and objective evaluation enables participants to quickly assimilate lessons learned into improved practices and training. Our exercise staff expertly blends best practices and other requirements to create exercises that truly identify current performance, gaps between your current performance and where you want to be, and recommended changes. We work closely with your workers, training them to develop, execute, and assimilate best practices learned during their exercises. Our training needs assessment process can also include workshops, data reviews, and diagnostic tabletop-to-field exercises to help determine current and proposed concepts of operations. Our exercise development and delivery team includes Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program (HSEEP)-certified staff skilled at creating, delivering, and evaluating domestic and international exercises.


Harkcon Academy administers evaluations for all of its courses in order to better identify course validity, reliability, and value. A student feedback survey is completed for each course and the data is regularly and systematically analyzed to assist in evaluating course effectiveness.

A comprehensive course review is conducted every two years to assess course relevancy, accuracy of content, appropriateness of delivery method, and to ensure the training is continuing to meet the needs of our customers.
