Students are introduced to basic concepts of emergency management as practiced in Ontario and across Canada. The course includes the Province of Ontario?s Basic Emergency Management (BEM) certification course curriculum addressing the core components (mitigation, prevention, preparedness, response and recovery) of emergency management. Instructed by a provincially certified Basic Emergency Management (BEM) facilitator, students meeting the provincial requirements will be given the opportunity to attain provincial certification in Basic Emergency Management. This course includes mandatory group work. We recommend viewing the course schedule immediately upon logging into the course to view course and group work requirements.
