Emergencies and disasters can happen anywhere, anytime. Are you up for the challenge of dealing head-on with an emergency?
NAIT’s Emergency Management program provides you with a fundamental understanding of emergency management across a broad spectrum of working environments. You will graduate with the practical skills to effectively supervise or manage emergency management functions.
Course work focuses on four key areas: mitigation, planning, response and recovery.
Responding to the request of industry, NAIT has implemented an Industrial Emergency Management Certificate and a Public Sector Emergency Management Certificate. Each certificate requires the completion of five courses, which are completely transferable toward the NAIT Emergency Management diploma. The new certificates provide credentials for emergency management practitioners who need professional emergency management education, but perhaps not necessarily up to a diploma level.
The ideal candidate for the Emergency Management program is a mature student with several years of work experience. A work background in one or more of the following areas would be an asset: emergency services (e.g., police, fire, EMS), security, military, industry, health care, government, or workplace health & safety. See Typical Responsibilities and Attributes of Emergency Management Practitioners document on far right for more details.
The Emergency Management program includes 19 courses and one practicum. Students with extensive previous experience may be eligible for advanced credit. The courses are delivered online.
A NAIT Continuing Education Diploma in Emergency Management will be awarded upon successful completion of the program.
