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.


Professional Development Curriculum

  • In most communities, the strength of the emergency management system is related directly to the skills of the local emergency management professionals. Protection of lives and property begins on the local level where the emergency impact is felt immediately. Prompt, effective response and speedy recovery is the result of planning done over the years. The creation of a viable emergency management system, one that can tap needed resources from both public and private agencies, can be credited to those individuals who took leadership roles in their communities.
  • Course initiatives for instilling management and state-of- the-art skills for the training cadre and for developing additional expanded professional capabilities are now available. This cadre is at the core of training and a professional, competent emergency management workforce.
