Emergency Management Institute offers free FEMA course for HSIs

The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute (EMI) is once again offering the E0390 Integrating Emergency Management Education into Your Institution course at EMI. This course is specifically designed for minority-serving institutions. The two-day course for Hispanic-Serving Institutions and Historically Black Colleges and Universities is scheduled March 25-26, 2019, on the campus of the Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, MD.

The course provides the skills and knowledge for establishing an emergency management or homeland security degree program or courses at colleges or universities. The target audience includes department chairs and faculty of emergency management-related disciplines such as sociology, geography, public administration or psychology, science and technology, or those responsible for curriculum decisions.

Enrollment is limited to 25 participants for this offering, enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis. Travel is reimbursable and there is no tuition or lodging cost. The participant’s only expense is the cost of meals while at the workshop. EMI is located on the campus of the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, about 75 miles north of Washington, D.C.  For any questions and registration information, contact Melissa Jabat, Training Specialist, at melissa.jabat@fema.dhs.gov, or by phone at 301-447-1544.
