ND Department of Emergency Services will be providing the Emergency Management Basic Academy in 2019. This is the first course of the series, L101 Foundations of Emergency Management. This class is 80 hours and will be scheduled in two parts, February 4-8, AND March 4-8, 2019. Registering for this course, you agree to attend both sessions.

L101 will be held at the Quality Inn, 1030 E Interstate Ave., Bismarck, ND. Class will be in session from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recognizes the need to tie training programs to an established set of emergency management competencies and to a career development program through a progressive training and education system that includes the entry-level Academy, called the National Emergency Management Basic Academy. Training objectives for this course, Foundations of Emergency Management, are based on the newly established Emergency Manager competencies that the National Emergency Management Association (NEMA); the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM); and local, State, territorial, and tribal emergency management professionals have established in coordination with the Emergency Management Institute (EMI).

The following topics in emergency management are covered in this course: legal issues; intergovernmental and interagency context; influencing, organizing, social vulnerability issues; managing stress; collaboration, preparedness; team building; mitigation; response; prevention and protection; ethical decision-making; recovery; technology; administration; and the future.

Pre-requisites for this course include IS 100, IS 200, IS 700, and IS 230.

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Comfort Suites,(701-223-4009) 929 Gateway Ave., Bismarck for both sessions of this class. Ask for the "NDDES Basic Academy Foundations" block. Reservations must be made two weeks prior to the scheduled class date to receive the state rate in this block.
