Homeland Security Training & Exercises: Online Training
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides independent study courses through the Emergency Management Institute (EMI). EMI, through its courses and programs, serves as the national focal point for the development and delivery of emergency management training to enhance the capabilities of Federal, State, local, and Tribal government officials, volunteer organizations, and the public and private sectors to minimize the impact of disasters on the American public. EMI curricula are structured to meet the needs of this diverse audience with an emphasis on how the various elements work together in emergencies to save lives and protect property. Instruction focuses on the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
cal•PEN provides no-cost emergency preparedness and response training to clinics, public health agencies and rural hospitals. The curriculum consists of six diverse, one-hour courses allowing the host to request a particular focus to meet their educational objectives. Faculty represents trained physicians, nurses, mid-levels and paramedics. Any combination of cal•PEN modules can be presented to your group of licensed clinicians and clinical staff. Continuing Medical Education units are provided to your clinicians at no charge.
The mission of the Homeland Security Training Branch is to support the Weapons of Mass Destruction First Responder community of California by providing training referrals, exercise support and the coordinated delivery of training and training materials. Through partnerships with federal, state and local training providers, the California Office of Homeland Security will ensure the widest possible access to WMD/CBRNE/Terrorism training for first responders throughout California, enhance the local delivery of training and exercises, and coordinate a comprehensive, inclusive statewide training strategy.
