The Emergent Responder Program is an intermediate to advanced level of instruction that prepares the student to be able to function in a post disaster environment solo, as part of a team or in a community.

The program includes over 120 hours of online and on-site instruction, combined with nearly the same amount of co-requisite hours (also online and on-site).

The goal of this course is to give students the ability to function fluently both inside the system of US-based post-disaster response, as well as the ability to function completely beyond that system, in austere or remote situations.

To that end, this program and its co-requisites cover the areas indicated below.
