This course is part of the National Emergency Management Basic Academy and will count towards
the completion of this program. It replaces the previous two-day version of the L0105 Public
Information and Warning course and the G290 Basic Public Information Officer course. The goal of
this course is to enhance the jurisdiction’s public information and warning core capability and will
consider the value of communication before, during and after an incident. It will also help PIOs
identify critical audiences, both internal and external.

This course is intended for newly appointed emergency managers from State, local, tribal,
territorial, and Federal emergency management agencies, and prospective professionals
transferring from another discipline to emergency management.

Required prerequisite: FEMA – Emergency Management Institute (EMI) Course | IS-29.A: Public
Information Officer Awareness. Please do not submit your certificate until asked to do so.

Registration Instructions: Registration will be done electronically via the Commonwealth of
Virginia Learning Center at: https://covlc.virginia.gov/. Deadline to register is August 23, 2023.
