Emmitsburg, MD — You are subscribed to EMI News for FEMA. The following information has recently been updated, and is now available on http://training.fema.gov/EMI/
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recognizes the need to tie training programs to an established set of emergency management competencies and to a career development program through a progressive training and education system that includes the Basic Academy. The Emergency Management Institute (EMI) is offering the opportunity to students who are experienced in emergency management and adult training to take a step toward becoming qualified as an instructor for the Basic Academy courses.
The first day of the Train-the-Trainer is devoted to course delivery strategy, logistics, demonstrations, and adult learning methods. The last four days will consist of student teach-backs that summarize a portion of the Basic Academy course subject matter, and describe activities and exercises plus time for critique and questions. These assignments are made in advance of the first day of class.
All topics covered in the course are covered from an instructor’s perspective in the Train-the-Trainer including at a minimum: history, legal issues, intergovernmental and interagency context, influencing, organizing, social vulnerability issues, managing stress, collaboration, planning, exercises, public information and warning, preparedness, team building, protection and prevention, mitigation, response, ethical decision-making, recovery, technology, administration, and the future of emergency management.
