Disaster Management Certificate

Step Up to Responsibility and Reward.
News coverage of natural and man-made disasters spreads rapidly. So does news coverage of disaster recovery operations gone awry. If you are interested in working in the field of emergency management, earning your Disaster Management Certificate can help prepare you to act knowledgably, capably, and decisively in the face of catastrophe. And knowing you've made a significant difference is a reward beyond compare.

  • As a public health official, you'll have the essential abilities to prepare for and prevent disasters, assess risk, and navigate communication channels effectively.
  • You'll see the role of disaster management from both a top-down perspective and a “boots-on-the-ground” view.
  • You'll understand the psychological and sociological impact of disasters on individuals, families, and communities.
