The University of Tulane offers a Disaster Management Graduate Certificate distance learning program for professionals in the disaster preparedness or response fields. The training involved combines course work, projects and labs to prepare students with the necessary skills to prepare for, evaluate and contain possible accidents. Emphasis is also placed upon working closely within management structures so they will see the value in avoidance planning.
The program is designed to produce students capable of applying their training to integrate environmental public health strategies to the core components of disaster management. Using scientific principles the student will learn to evaluate the capacity of public health systems. Ultimately, graduates will become paragons of environmental hazard prevention in their workplaces and communities.
