3 Specialist Certificate Anticipating the need for degree programs, standardized training and academic credits, CalEMA/CSTI now offers the Specialist Certificate Program. Criminal Justice certificates may be earned in: Emergency Crisis Communications Curriculum advisory groups ensure curriculum is current and in compliance with state and federal standards including SEMS/NIMS, Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The State Training Officer and the State Exercise Officer serve as California s principle training and exercise liaisons to the Federal Department of Homeland Security and FEMA. Courses meeting requirements for FEMA s Professional Development series and Advanced Professional Series may qualify for dual certifications. 25

4 Credential Program Emergency responders have assisted neighboring communities whenever help was needed. Given today s challenges, the potential for communities to require help from emergency response organizations across the state and the nation has increased significantly. The need for specializations in emergency response places additional demands on our emergency response communities. To meet this need CalEMA has implemented the Emergency Response/ Credentialing program to support emergency response throughout the state and the nation. Eventually it will provide a seamless transition into the larger effort of the National Emergency Responder Credentialing system providing mutual aid support through the Emergency Assistance Compact (EMAC). This voluntary system will provide timely identification of key ICS personnel from the field to the state level. The development of the statewide credentialing database will assist Incident Commanders and EOC Directors with the means to quickly and accurately identify qualified emergency responders throughout the state. 26

5 College Credit Eligibility In addition to completing the CalEMA Emergency Specialist Certificate, course participants can earn college units towards an accredited degree program. College credit is available through the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly). This allows course participants the option of obtaining college credit for an additional fee. All curriculum is reviewed and approved by Cal Poly to ensure compliance with academic standards and accreditation requirements. Emergency courses currently eligible for college units: Earthquake: An Introduction to Emergency Crisis Communications I Disaster Recovery Managing Sustained Operations Enhanced Exercise Design, Conduct, and Evaluation Disaster Planning Disaster Mitigation You can earn academic credit for these selected courses offered by the California Specialized Training Institute (CSTI). Earning academic credit in these courses not only prepares you for leadership positions in these growing fields, but also can help you complete an undergraduate degree or graduate degree. The courses are considered elective and residential credit and can count toward the Bachelor of Arts or a master s degree in Public Policy at Cal Poly. You can also use the credit for other professional development requirements, including degree programs at other campuses of the California State University.

6 Earthquake: An Introduction to Emergency in California (E) This training program introduces participants to key emergency management principles and practices using a complex earthquake disaster. Participants will be involved in a progressive series of exercise culminating in a realistic earthquake simulation as a member of an emergency management team. Individual enrollments are welcome. However, when possible, participants are encouraged to enroll as a team from a jurisdiction: comprised of their Chief Executive Officer, department heads, operations officers, emergency planners, and others with essential emergency management responsibilities. The importance of a comprehensive set of strategies is stressed. Those strategies include initial disaster response and options to mitigate the impact of disasters before they happen and to strengthen preparations for prompt, effective restoration during recovery. Key topics covered are: Seismological and Geological Considerations Standard Emergency and National Incident (SEMS/NIMS) First Responder Issues Action Planning Information Technologies for Earthquakes Mutual Aid Emergency Public Information EOC Organization and Functions Emergency Exercising Damage Assessment Volunteer Services 4 ½ day/ 37.5 hr course POST-Certified- Plan III, DHS Approved, Eligible for 3 quarter units college credit Instructor: Joe Costello Course Availability: Offered on Annual Training Roster & Agency Contract 28

7 Disaster Planning (DP) Developing an all-hazard plan for protecting lives and property may seem like an extremely difficult challenge; it need not be. Emergency operations planning need not start from scratch. Those tasked with writing an emergency operations plan should take advantage of others experiences. The Disaster Planning course at CSTI guides you through a number of processes to make your planning process easier and more successful. The public expects emergency managers to take immediate action to minimize the impact caused by disasters and emergencies. Those actions are most successful when planned. In this course, participants will learn the tools and techniques for developing or enhancing an allhazard emergency operations plan. The following key topics are discussed: The Planning Process Using SWOT Analysis Tools Situation Assessment Hazard Threat and Risk Analysis Using SEMS as a Guide for Written Plans Planning for: Business, Volunteer and Service Organizations Terrorism Planning Emergency Medical Planning How Disasters in Other Countries Affect California Mitigation and Recovery Exercises California Emergency Planning Guidance Recovery Issues Case Studies from Local Government 5 day/40 hr. course DHS approved, Eligible for 3 quarter units of college credit Prerequisite: SEMS introductory course or completion of the SEMS Introductory Exam included in the course confirmation package Instructor: Michael Brady Course Availability: Offered on Annual Training Roster 29
