Overview

Understanding emergency management and your role during a disaster is an essential. These online courses will teach you about the Alberta emergency management framework and the important role you may undertake during a disaster.

Changes in access to free online training

The Local Authority Emergency Management Regulation comes into effect on January 1, 2020, and we are preparing to re-align our training model with the new legislative requirements.

As of December 12, 2019, non-primary students will experience a temporary closure to online emergency management courses. Non-primary students include public sector students who do not have a direct role in Alberta’s emergency management system, non-government organizations (NGOs) who are not members of the NGO council and students who work for private industry.

In Spring 2020, a new training calendar will be published on this page with information on course availability and registration.
