Incident Management & Preparedness Training

TRAINING NOTE:  A significant portion of EMI's training is conducted by state emergency management agencies ( Non-Resident Courses - EMI Courses Conducted by States) and identified by the EMI-developed/state-delivered G course code.  EMI develops and maintains the curriculum while the states tailor the courses to their communities and provide state-level certificates.  


The ability to perform essential work in a disaster requires skills in emergency operations and management. The Professional Development Series includes seven Emergency Management Institute independent study courses that provide a well-rounded set of fundamentals for those in the emergency management profession. With the successful completion of the PDS, you will be awarded a Certificate from FEMA. 

For those who want to "double-dip"... 

As a Coast Guard Auxiliary staff officer, it is critical to develop your leadership and management toolbox so you can be effective in your role either at the district, division, or flotilla level. The T-Directorate has chosen to utilize four (4) most relevant of these seven (7) courses as training for all staff Officers. Click here for the Coast Guard Auxiliary Staff Officer Training.


IS-907: Active Shooter: What You Can Do

An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and other populated area. In most cases, active shooters use firearms and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Active shooter situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.

Everyone can help prevent and prepare for potential active shooter situations. This course provides guidance to individuals, including managers and employees, so that they can prepare to respond to an active shooter situation.

This course is not written for law enforcement officers, but for non-law enforcement employees. The material may provide law enforcement officers information on recommended actions for non-law enforcement employees to take should they be confronted with an active shooter situation.
