What to Expect
The Emergency Management Program gives students the opportunity to study while maintaining their busy lives. All courses are currently delivered online, allowing students to complete courses without having to take leave from their jobs or families. NAIT currently has an Academic Institutional Membership with the Canadian Risk and Hazard Network (CRHNet). This allows students who have been accepted into the EMGT program to secure individual membership for the duration of their program at no additional cost.
For more information on the benefits of this membership, please click on the link found in the Additional Resources. Program content is designed to help prepare students to challenge the exams, post-graduation, for additional credentialing through the Disaster Recovery Institute (ABCP), and the International Association of Emergency Managers (AEM).
A 15-week Final Project course will be completed when the student is finished most or all of the 19 academic courses. This applied project course allows students to tackle a real-world Emergency Management issue or problem, on behalf of an actual Emergency Management stakeholder of their choosing. This provides students with the opportunity to practically apply the knowledge they have gained during their studies. The Final Project course is required for graduation.
