Emergency Preparedness


ADMEI's Emergency Preparedness Certificate Program (EPCP) is an 8 hour course developed in collaboration with global leaders in security, intelligence, training, law, and investigative services.

Throughout the course, attendees participate in group exercises encouraging problem solving from different industry perspectives. Sessions include Emergency Planning, Risk Assessment, Medical Duty of Care, Risk Mitigation.  In addition, attendees receive a variety of tools/handouts to customize for their use.

Duty of Care is a core responsibility for meeting professionals. This principle requires planners to ensure the safety and well-being of attendees. The most likely threat to attendees at a meeting or event is an unexpected medical emergency. Yet many times, very little effort is spent on preparing for such an event. In addition, other health-related issues can impact attendee engagement and business continuity.

This course, focused on global strategies, helps develop emergency & risk management specialists within attendee’s company.
