What to Expect
The Emergency Management Program gives students the opportunity to study while maintaining their busy lives. All courses are 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. Students who complete EMGT2330 will also be eligible to write the external qualification exam for the Associate Business Continuity Professional (ABCP) through the Disaster Recovery Institute of Canada (DRI). For more information on this including cost and benefits please follow the link in Additional Resources.
A 15-week capstone project will be completed when the student is finished most or all of the 19 academic courses. The capstone project allows students to apply the knowledge they have gained during their studies and apply it to a research project based on original or existing research and in a group or individually. The capstone project is required for graduation.
