The Idaho Office of Emergency Management provides training to help the “whole community” address the five mission areas of prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery from disasters. Providing training to the “whole community” builds relationships across geographical boundaries, disciplines, and areas of responsibility. IOEM welcomes stakeholders from state and local jurisdictions, tribal nations, volunteer and faith-based organizations, and private industry to training events that support all-hazard emergency management and homeland security.
It is important to identify the appropriate level of training for the target audience. IOEM offers awareness, management, performance and executive level courses. The IOEM Training and Exercise Section can assist in determining courses and learning programs that will further preparedness for individuals or agencies. Many of the training events sponsored by IOEM are free although some classes may have a registration fee to cover the expenses for conducting the class. Please refer to the course flyers for specific registration details for each class. To view our updated training list, click here: upcoming training opportunities.
