Current cabinet secretaries as well as Trump's national security advisor, Mike Flynn, and his state and defense picks Rex Tillerson and James Mattis are among those taking part.
The White House said the tabletop exercises will go over previous crises like natural disasters and national security emergencies and game out hypothetical future scenarios.
"Some (are) related to domestic emergency response, the response to a natural disaster or a significant weather event, for example," said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.
"It also will include some foreign policy and national security exercises as well."
Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said the exercise was to help ensure a "seamless transition."
