(PREP 1101) Fundamentals of Emergency Preparedness
This online course uses the Columbia University developed emergency preparedness competencies to educate the public health workforce about the preparation for and response to disasters and other public health emergencies. It includes a self-study online learning component, while also requiring learners to demonstrate individual competencies within their public health occupational role. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a completion.
Please note that this course was formerly known as "Basic Emergency Preparedness for All Public Health Workers." A few features have changed in this new version. For instance, it is no longer required for the learner's supervisor to submit an email indicating that the competency checklist has been reviewed. Instead, the learner and the supervisor are encouraged to discuss and verify the form together, and then move on to the satisfaction survey.
