Gwinnett Tech Offers New Program in Crisis Management
Emergency Preparedness, Business Continuity a Must in Today’s World
Gwinnett Tech has introduced a new program to address the growing need for trained professionals in emergency preparedness and management. The college's new public/private crisis manager certificate program provides businesses with skilled professionals that have the relevant knowledge needed to provide emergency sustainability and business continuity.
Gwinnett Tech is the only technical college in the state to offer this certificate.
Preparing for a disaster or crisis is on the minds of most savvy businesses these days. With natural and manmade catastrophes and crises seemingly at an all-time high, businesses are in need of a well thought-out - and tested - crisis plan to be adopted and maintained.
Gwinnett Tech designed the new public/private crisis manager program specifically for the growing number of businesses addressing business continuity planning and critical response. The certificate program serves as an introduction to the overall field of emergency management.
This type of business continuity planning helps an organization or business prepare for natural and man-made emergencies that may jeopardize the goals and welfare of the company - and its ability to serve customers or the public. Possible situations include catastrophic and pandemic illnesses, tornadoes and hurricanes, fires and floods, homeland security threats and other circumstances that threaten lives.
Professionals who serve in the capacity of emergency or crisis management often have the vital tasks of preparing emergency response operations to both human and natural disasters, devising victim and family assistance operations, and spelling out detailed crisis communication plans. Gwinnett Tech's public/private crisis management certificate program addresses these important tasks and others.
The program is essential for existing or aspiring business continuity planners, risk managers, and human resource professionals. The public/private crisis management certificate program can be completed in three quarters, and much of the course work can be completed online. Credits earned can be applied toward Gwinnett Tech's associate degree in emergency management.
