Inaugural Colorado Emergency Management Academy
The program schedule spans nine months, anchored by a series of resident courses with one course per quarter until July 2011. Outside the classroom series, participants must also complete a number of independent study courses online. In order to be accepted to the program, applicants must complete seven FEMA courses, called the Professional Development Series, as prerequisites in addition to other training. In July 2011, the participants will attend the culminating training event for a week-long resident set of courses designed to meet the Advanced Professional Series and build strong emergency response skills.
