Certification performed by ACAC: Testing, analysis, and evaluation of the individual's knowledge, skills and abilities for the purpose of certification and re-certification in the field of business-related emergency operations management.

 

Program Summary:

Council-certified Emergency Operations personnel (CEOP, CEOM and CEOC) coordinate and manage a company's response to a natural or man-made disaster in the event that government first responders cannot arrive immediately.  From fire suppression and light search & rescue to medical and building triage, Council-certified personnel have knowledge and experience in a wide range of disciplines relevant to disaster management.  Working as part of the regular staff of any business, they develop and maintain procedures and chains of command that enable the company to maintain order in the event of an emergency and provide first responders with an accurate assessment of the situation when they arrive.   

Council-certified Emergency Operations personnel (CEOP, CEOM and CEOC) possess verified knowledge of the disaster management field.  The CEOP, CEOM and CEOC certification exams cover the most respected reference texts in the industry. Candidates must know the important industry standards. They must be familiar with scientific principles governing a wide range of disasters and their implications for life and health.  They must understand the most common practices and protocols used by first responders, as they often perform the work of first responders in the first hours after a disaster strikes.

A CEOP, CEOM or CEOC possesses verified experience in emergency operations management in settings like these:

PLEASE NOTE: Field experience must include participating in or preparing for incidents where first responders from government agencies would be expected to arrive. Examples include Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Major Fires, Major Floods, Mud slides, Terrorist Attacks, Nuclear disasters, Riots, Pandemics and Active Shooter Incidents.
