The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness will be sponsoring two deliveries of a two-day training course titled, “Disaster Management for Public Services” (MGT-317). The Texas Engineering Extension Service, a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium, will deliver the training.
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
The Disaster Management for Public Services course provides real world training to public service professionals helping to provide both the knowledge and skills necessary to protect their communities and infrastructure from potential or actual threats. During this course, participants work together in multidisciplinary teams to apply the course information with their professional experience in a variety of hands-on, small group activities, and disaster scenarios. This course brings together emergency management personnel who are expected to identify and mitigate hazards and who plan and manage disaster response and recovery efforts within their jurisdictions. Participants will be introduced to natural and man-made disasters to which public services may be vulnerable. This course also explains emergency planning and management and the regulatory systems, documents, and directives that guide disaster response.
This course is for participants interested in obtaining the TEEX Infrastructure Disaster Management Certificate. The certificate is for professionals who wish to enrich their personal knowledge and skills related to critical infrastructure disaster management. Participants can request to receive a Series Certificate once all four courses (MGT-317, MGT-341, MGT-345, and MGT-343) are completed.
