National Emergency Management Advanced Academy

E0453: Advanced III - Advanced Concepts and Issues in the Emergency Management Organization

Course Description

The goal of E0452, Advanced II, is to provide EM professionals with critical skills that are needed to be able to apply personal management styles in the context of EM. Advanced II will provide participants with the essential skills needed to lead EM programs at the mid-manager's level and will be essential to building the foundation for collaboration by bringing EM professionals together to share their experiences and establish a network.

Participants will be varied in their skills. For example, an individual may be highly skilled at community outreach, but poor at building organizational support. A goal of this course is to approach these capabilities as skills that can be developed, and these skills will be honed in the exercises.

The EM Organization is redefined in Advanced III as including not just the members of one’s own agency, but also anyone with whom one works during emergency planning and emergency response, i.e., one’s network of colleagues and the people served. While every jurisdiction’s definition of its organization is going to be different, the core competencies of EM professionals are ways to explore the issues that are common to organizations. Public advocacy and cultural competence are also addressed.
