24th Annual New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Conference
Some Special Training Announcements...
Advanced Professional Series Classes

NJEPA in partnership with the New Jersey State Police Office of Emergency Management is pleased to continue the initiative that will allow Conference attendees to complete the Advanced Professional Series (APS) within three years.

The Advanced Professional Series offers "how to" training focused on practical information.  This series emphasizes applied skills in disaster operations and management, in conjunction with the Professional Series emergency management fundamental skills.  The APS course lineup was first established to motivate and challenge students to continue emergency management training.  Courses include practical skills from the whole spectrum of emergency management and disaster duties.  APS courses are classroom based unless otherwise noted.  Students who complete the 5 required courses and any 5 of 15 elective courses are eligible to receive the FEMA Advanced Professional Series Certificate of Completion.  

By completing the APS, individuals show that they are knowledgeable in the five mission area components of emergency management:  prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery.  The series completion certificate is a standard that is recognized across the country.  The APS does not require a recertification once initially completed and there is no cost to participate in the FEMA sponsored certification program.  APS courses are delivered through the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management.  

There are plans to offer APS courses throughout the Conference week! Please look for special announcements and check the course offerings as they are posted.
