The Community College of Rhode Island Emergency Management program invites prospective students to meet faculty and discuss associate and certificate programs in this field of study this month. The program will hold an open house and information session from 4-7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 20, in Room 4090 at the CCRI Knight Campus, 400 East Ave., Warwick. Refreshments will be served.
The Associate in Science degree program in Emergency Management and the Emergency/Disaster Management certificate are designed to give students the skills needed to enter the emergency management field. This discipline covers a broad spectrum of job opportunities in the government sector, working in emergency management and for FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security, police, fire, EMS and public health. Job opportunities are also in the private sector in hospitals, security and businesses.
