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.
- The incident command system.
- Disaster assistance.
- Emergency response to terrorism.
SEM training introduces students to a broader scope of emergency management. It helps prepare you to be a good corporate citizen in planning and dealing with emergencies in your community, including disaster assistance outside of your normal working environment.
Once you’ve completed the coursework, you’ll take a comprehensive exam to demonstrate your new knowledge. You’ll have two opportunities to pass your exam with a score of 80% or higher. When you pass, you’ll receive your certificate and specialist designation.
Our SEM course takes approximately 13 hours to complete, depending on your existing understanding of emergency preparedness. This course is IACET-accredited and students will receive 1.3 continuing education units (CEUs) following their exam.
