EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT TRAINING

Emergency Management British Columbia (EMBC) offers sponsored emergency management (EM) training courses throughout the province to support the training requirements of local government EM staff, and Public Safety Lifeline Volunteers (PSVL) who function in EM operational roles during emergencies. If additional seats are available, priority is extended to Temporary Emergency Assignment Management System (TEAMS) personnel that are deployed during activations, followed by staff of Provincial Regional Emergency Operations Centres (PREOC) and the Provincial Emergency Coordination Centre (PECC). The EM courses are hosted by local communities, the registrations coordinated through the EMBC regional offices and course delivery provided through the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC).

These one and two-day courses support participantsí understanding of important functional areas related to emergency management in their jurisdiction. This training also aims to increase the understanding of roles and responsibilities of government and non-government agencies in an escalating emergency situation.

British Columbia Emergency Response Management System Training

The B.C. Emergency Response Management System (BCERMS), approval process and standards for IEPC approved training providers is currently undergoing review. We will not be accepting any new applications until the review process is complete, at which time notification will be posted on this website.

Inter-agency Emergency Preparedness Council (IEPC)
Standards have been developed for potential provincially-approved B.C. Emergency Response Management System (BCERMS) training providers.

The standards document, entitled Standards for BCERMS Training Providers and BCERMS Training Materials,[PDF] was developed by the Inter-agency Emergency Preparedness Council (IEPC), a committee of representatives from provincial ministries, Crown corporations and major utilities.

Approved training providers may use existing IEPC-approved materials, or may develop their own materials. Once a BCERMS training provider has been approved by the IEPC or new BCERMS training materials have been IEPC-approved, the provider may use the IEPC logo and the provider's name and/or materials will be added to the regularly updated approved BCERMS training providers and training materials list.
