The Certificate of Completion in Homeland Security and Emergency Management equips students with the necessary skills to effectively respond to homeland security incidents. Modeled from federal guidelines, this unique certificate offers the dual benefit of earning college credits while preparing students to take the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) certification examination.
