Emergency Management Institute offers free FEMA course for HSIs

The Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, Maryland, will offer the E0390 Integrating Emergency Management Education into Your Institution course for free to all Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). 

This course is a two day interactive workshop designed to assist minority and minority-serving institutions of higher education (IHEs) in establishing or enhancing Emergency Management (EM) courses or programs in their institutions. It addresses issues unique to them, and begins the process of identifying and overcoming institutional roadblocks to increasing their schools’ EM-related offerings.

 This course is specifically designed for minority-serving institutions and is scheduled for February 26-27, 2018 on the campus of the Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, Maryland. For more information on the course click here.

 The target audience includes Department Chairs of emergency management-related disciplines such as sociology, geography, public administration or psychology, or those responsible for curriculum decisions. The course provides the skills and knowledge for establishing an emergency management or homeland security degree program or courses at your college or university. Travel is reimbursable and there is no tuition or lodging costs. The participant’s only expense is the cost of meals while here.

 Anyone interested may contact Mitigation Branch Chief, Lillian Virgil, at Lillian.virgil@fema.dhs.gov, or by phone at 301-447-1490.
