Loyalist launches Emergency Management & Incident Response certificate program

December 15, 2020
Loyalist College has launched an Emergency Management & Incident Response Program. The program will cover a variety of topics, including incident management systems, incident response and crisis communications, and risk and assessment. Graduates will be prepared to conduct training programs, test emergency management programs, and implement business continuity plans. The one-year graduate certificate program will be delivered in a blended format. “The shortage of emergency managers that existed prior to the pandemic has been exacerbated by increasing demands for the safeguarding of society through disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation,” said Loyalist President Ann Marie Vaughan. “This new program […] will immediately address these skills gaps to help Ontario strategically prepare for a safer future.” Loyalist (ON)
