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.

TRAINING A PROFESSIONAL WORKFORCE

Protecting the population is a primary responsibility of government, and fulfilling this responsibility depends on the skills and abilities of emergency personnel to respond in a timely and proficient manner when disaster strikes.

Developing professional and competent emergency personnel requires a community-wide commitment to ensure that all individuals involved in emergency response and support activities have the skills they need to perform under stressful conditions. At the heart of any comprehensive training program are the trainers who design, teach, and evaluate the many training programs that provide basic entry-level skills and advanced technical skill specializations. EMI’s Trainer Program is designed to develop a cadre of training professionals capable of performing training functions from analyzing training needs to the design, development, delivery, evaluation, and management of training activities with the goal of achieving excellence through training.

WHO SHOULD ENROLL IN THE TRAINER PROGRAM?

Training officers, training staff, and training officials that perform instructional delivery; design and develop curriculum; and manage training programs.

THE TRAINER PROGRAM

The Trainer Program is designed to provide training professionals a means to acquire basic knowledge and skills in various areas of the training profession. The program is comprised of two certificate programs, the Basic Instructor Certificate and the Basic Instructional Design Certificate.
