Developed by a team of experienced emergency management practitioners and based on international best practices, these courses are tailored to meet specific requirements for the role of the Municipal Emergency Coordinator, as set out by Provincial legislation.
We offer these courses across Manitoba, so you don’t have to go far to participate.
The courses will be in person,
so you will have networking opportunities with the educators and other participants.
Each course will provide credits toward a Municipal Emergency Coordinator Certification.
