Post Secondary Programs In Disaster and Emergency Preparedness - Distance & Online

Post by thecrownsown » Mon Mar 30, 2020 7:12 pm

Not specifically prepper, but there are a number of programs now available to better understand how disaster planning works, how to implement plans and generally get a better understanding and appreciation of the infrastructure and systems at work. A lot of the questions and criticisms on this board, some very valid can be addressed by knowing and understanding more about how "it all works."

Some of the programs that are available out there:

Ryerson University: Certificate in Disaster and Emergency Management and PDA in Survival in Urban Disasters and Emergencies (All Online)

George Brown College: Certificate in Emergency Management (Distance Learning and/or Online)
https://coned.georgebrown.ca/courses-an ... rtificate/

Algonquin College: Certificate in Emergency Management (All online)
https://www.algonquincollege.com/online ... e/#courses

All the programs simply require you to have completed High School. There are some exceptions for mature students if you fall into that group. Laurier University offers a Master's degree in Emergency Management, however I dont really think there is much point in things like that unless its a career choice. But a few courses at a college or uni that gives a well rounded knowledge sounds reasonable.

I've decided to try out the program at Ryerson (among some other courses) and see where it leads. Just another part of the puzzle I suppose. :)

Crown, I think those who enjoy the prepping concepts, are young and looking to combine passion with a career would do well to look at the courses you list.
