Office of Emergency Management (OEM) coordinates national training programs and provides
training services throughout the state. These instruction programs enhance
capabilities of the response communities for all hazards, through:
- OEM directed training delivery
- National provider residential training program coordination
- National provider direct local delivery coordination
services are organized by the OEM State Training Officer, and supported by
program representatives in one of three sections: Operations and Preparedness,
Mitigation and Recovery Services, and Technology and Response.
For information on attending or hosting a training activity, contact:
Karen Layng, Acting State Training Officer
for Conducting or Taking Training
There are many opportunities to conduct or participate in training. Listed below
are some of the major avenues to take training and receive recognition.
Training Using Homeland Security Funds
Local and tribal jurisdictions
can develop training using Homeland Security Grant funds. Jurisdictions must include the training
development as part of their State Homeland Security Program grant application
and follow this process.
The ICS Training Protocol
offers guidance on scheduling command level Incident Command System
(ICS) training, specifically ICS 300 and ICS 400 400 trainings, that are
coordinated through OEM.
Oregon Basic Applied Practices Series
The Oregon Basic Applied Practices Series (BAPS) consists of several basic knowledge required
courses and four (4) elective courses. The intent of the BAPS is to
provide training needed by all emergency service providers for successful field
operations. Courses in the Professional Development Series (PDS) cannot
be used to meet BAPS requirements.
Professional Development Series
The Professional Development Series includes seven FEMA Emergency Management Institute independent
study courses that provide a well-rounded set of fundamentals for those in the
emergency management profession. Many students build on this foundation to
develop their careers.
Emergency Management Degree
Clackamas Community College (CCC) offers an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Emergency
Management. There is no "residency requirement" for the college
credit. Students pay a "transcript fee" per course rather than a per
credit hour fee.
