Emergency Management Training


The Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management hosts a variety of Emergency Management Institute (EMI) courses throughout the year. We request these classes through the Department of Emergency and Military Affair's Training and Exercise Branch. The classes selected are based on gaps and agency identified needs in the Integrated Preparedness Plan (IPP), which was previously known as the Multi-Year Training and Exercise Plan (MYTEP). This classes are funded through the State Homeland Security Preparedness Grant (SHSGP). We also seek to bring relevant and needed training to the region through other institutions such as: Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX)National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC)Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP), and the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC)

Training hosted at the Yavapai County Emergency Operations Center will require registration through the Acadis Training Portal

FEMA Independent Study Programs

FEMA Independent Study courses can be completed through the Emergency Management Institute's (EMI) Independent Study website. Here you’ll find many independent study programs, to include the basic National Incident Management System and Incident Command system programs:

  • IS100 - Introduction to the Incident Command System
  • IS200 - Incident Command System for Single Resources
  • IS700 - Introduction to the National Incident Management System
  • IS800 - National Response Framework

These Incident Command courses provide a foundation for most all emergency management programs, and are essential for NIMS Compliance. Please note that G300 (Intermediate ICS) and G400 (Advanced ICS) can NOT be completed on-line, but are classes we regularly host.
