Emergency Management Training

California’s public, private, volunteer, and tribal emergency services personnel serve their communities with professionalism and dedication. The potential for communities to require disaster assistance has significantly increased. Cal OES’ Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Position Credentialing Track promotes an enhanced level of readiness and response for day-to day emergencies and catastrophic disasters by ensuring qualified and competent staffing for EOCs, Department Operations Centers (DOCs), and support centers.

The need for emergency management personnel to deploy outside their home jurisdictions has placed additional demands on emergency services systems. Existing mutual-aid systems must evolve to provide swift and successful support by deploying qualified emergency services personnel to any domestic emergency/disaster.

Cal OES’ EOC Position Credentialing Track helps promote elements of the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) and is designed to flow into the larger effort of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Guidelines for the Credentialing of Personnel. The NIMS Guidelines require states to initiate development of a State/Territory/Tribal system (that incorporates local jurisdictions) to credential emergency management/response personnel to ensure proper authorization and access to an incident including involving mutual aid agreements and/or assistance agreements. By following the framework of the Federal Guidance, California’s EOC Position Credentialing Track will facilitate a seamless transition into a national system.

Cal OES’ EOC Position Credentialing Track promotes effective and efficient personnel resource management, and enhances the level of professionalism and capabilities for emergency services personnel.
