Emergency Management Certificate

Disaster losses are increasing in the United States. Disasters are, and will continue to be, a growth business. The surrounding social, economic, political, and bureaucratic contexts within which Emergency Management operates has also become more complicated, requiring more sophisticated engagement.

The Emergency Management certificate program, which requires only four courses, offers an opportunity to raise the level of professionalism in the emergency management personnel. This will, in turn, make communities and businesses more resilient to disasters, either natural or caused by humans. The courses required in the certificate program will help emergency managers learn to be more active in bringing people together from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines to help solve problems through the vision of complementary minds allied for a common purpose.
