The Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP) offers the EMAP Training Course for those interested in becoming a volunteer assessor. All sessions will be posted to the EMAP Events Calendar.
The EMAP Training Course is designed to prepare individuals to serve as on-site peer assessors as part of the accreditation process. Training will cover EMAP standards, on-site assessment procedures, assessor roles and responsibilities, and other issues necessary to serve as an assessor for EMAP. Those attending one of these training courses may be eligible to participate on assessment teams for applicant program assessments. Serving on an assessment team involves reviewing an applicant program's self-assessment materials and documentation, participating in on-site assessment of the program (four to nine days including travel), and working with other team members to compile an assessment report. Serving as an assessor is an excellent way to serve the public and the profession of emergency management while broadening one's knowledge of emergency management practices.
- There is no cost for the training for qualified emergency managers currently employed by state/territorial, local, or federal government; however, attendees must register in advance (deadline dates for registration are listed on EMAP Events Calendar).
- Emergency managers currently working in the private sector must also register and pay a registration fee of $350 U.S.
