The SCEMD Training and Exercise Section is responsible for coordinating the training of emergency planners, response, and recovery personnel throughout all levels of government in South Carolina, as well as the development and execution of state emergency management exercises.
The courses listed on this site are available to all persons involved in emergency management activities at the local, state, and federal levels. There is no charge for tuition or materials, and authorized students may be eligible for reimbursement of lodging and per diem expenses in accordance with state fiscal policy.
Members of private non-profit/non-governmental organizations are welcome and are encouraged to participate in our training. SCEMD, however, reserves the right to prioritize government employees and may require a written statement from your sponsoring organization or the county emergency management director of the county in which you work and/or live.
