We will be performing scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, December 28, 2021 starting at 8:00 AM EST.

Please contact us if you experience any issues outside of this maintenance window.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings. We also continue to evaluate the local and national situation and will provide regular updates.

Students will be notified in advance concerning the status of their on-campus course offering.

We thank you for your understanding, and we invite you to visit our extensive catalog of Independent Study Courses as well as classroom courses available by virtual delivery.


Mitigation Curriculum

  • The Mitigation Curriculum provides training for Federal, State, local, and tribal governments that are working to eliminate or reduce the long-term risk to human life and property posed by earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, dam failures, landslides, hurricanes, and other natural hazards.
  • The curriculum includes training courses of varying lengths. Resident offerings* generally last 4 days while field* courses last 1 to 2 days. Some offerings are appropriate only for resident delivery because they require instruction by representatives of a number of Federal agencies and facilitators located in the Washington, DC, area.
  • Many of the courses offered in this curriculum area directly support the training requirements of Federal
    programs, such as the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the National Hurricane Program, and the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP). Participants in these courses learn about program regulations and policies and are provided with the tools and techniques for implementing mitigation strategies.

Note:

  • Resident Offerings: Courses delivered on EMI campus
  • Field Offerings: Courses delivered off EMI campus
