WHAT: FEMA recognizes the need to tie training programs to an established set of emergency management competencies and to a Career Development Program through a progressive training and education system that includes the entry-level Academy, called the National Emergency Management Basic Academy. Training objectives for this course are based on the newly established emergency manager competencies that the National Emergency Management Association; the International Association of Emergency Managers; and state, local, territorial, and tribal emergency management professionals have established in coordination with EMI.
The following topics in emergency management are covered in this course: history; legal issues; intergovernmental and interagency context; influencing and organizing; social vulnerability issues; managing stress; collaboration, preparedness, and team-building; mitigation, response, prevention, and protection; ethical decision-making; recovery; technology; administration; and the future.
It is mandatory that the participant complete all 40 hours of this course to receive full credit. Anything less will result in the participant’s need to re-register for another course and start from the beginning.
At completion of this course, students will have a basic knowledge of the history of doctrine and authorities of emergency management, the role of the emergency manager, and an overview of all hazards.
