GOOD skills are easy to come by if you are watching for opportunities. Recently, I became aware of a course being offered, free-of-charge, from Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA). The link to this course is here: AEMA Basic Emergency Management Course
The course material is easy to download, it is a PDF manual. It takes about 3 to 4 hours to work through at a relaxed pace. Now to get your certificate you need to register and then complete the online exam, which I am told takes about an hour. I am waiting for my login to be approved, so I can write the final exam.
Always learn something new!
