Emergency Management specialists coordinate disaster or crisis management activities. Emergency Management training will consist of preparing emergency plans and procedures for responding to natural, technological, or terrorism events, and coordinating consequence management after the disaster. A certificate in Emergency Management is designed to enhance the capabilities of federal, state, local, and tribal government officials, volunteer organizations, and the public and private sectors to minimize the impact of natural or human-caused disasters on the public. The courses are structured to meet the needs of this diverse audience with an emphasis on how the various elements work together in emergencies to save lives and protect property.
Certificates are typically short, concentrated programs of study, within a particular field, ranging from 14 credits to 40. Many are designed to develop the core job skills for a particular business or industry in one year or less of full-time enrollment. Although these are not intended to be transfer programs, some students transfer to specialized schools or programs.
