Emergency management specialists respond to emergencies that could cause injuries or damage to employees, the environment or industrial facilities. They search for resources and prepare to handle events such as on-site accidents, HAZMAT spills and fires, as well as natural disasters like floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes.

Students who complete our Emergency Management Specialist certificate program learn how to mitigate emergencies and work behind the scenes with other organizations to pool resources for the best outcomes.

SEM Course Overview

The National Association of Safety Professionals (NASP) Emergency Management course is designed to teach students how to respond to various workplace emergencies and prepare plans that minimize the impact. You’ll learn how to find resources to help manage emergencies, including assistance from various federal, state and local agencies that coordinate disaster relief.

This course is divided into five modules of emergency management training, including:

  • Emergency preparedness.
  • Emergency program management.
