This is an exclusive opportunity for conference attendees to receive certification as Basic Public Information Officer (290).

Course Description
This is an updated (Jan. 2016) two-day course focusing upon the unique role of the Public Information Officer (PIO) in emergency management.  This course will help PIOs or people assigned that role to fine-tune their job skills. Students will explore the role of the PIO in all phases of emergency management. They will look at the multi-faceted duties and challenges of it. Through individual and group activities, students will develop and practice a series of communication skills and identify ways to integrate all phases of emergency management into a comprehensive public information program. The class is a prerequisite for the Advanced Public Information Course (E388) at the Emergency Management Institute and the Master Public Information Officer Course (E389).

September 7th & 8th, 2016, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM both days.  Space is limited and Annual Conference registrants who elect to participate must sign-up in advance and commit themselves to attend the required two-day program.  Upon completion of the full two-day course, attendees will receive FEMA certification as Basic Public Information Officer (290).
