What is the Crisis Academy?

Homepage of the Crisis Academy, the sponsor of this emergency management and response blog

The Crisis Academy is an online education and professional development platform for emergency management and response professionals.

While there are many emergency management and response training programs out there, few are online and even fewer – if any – offer the opportunity to learn from peers. The Crisis Academy is hoping to change that by permitting anyone with knowledge and skills in this field to submit courses on emergency management and response topics (subject to a quality review).

To find out more, please visit www.crisisacademy.org.
