What will I learn?

Emergency management focuses on organising communities to respond to disasters, survive them, rebuild social structures and infrastructure, and sustain and preserve life.

Increase your knowledge of emergency management issues

Massey’s Postgraduate Certificate in Emergency Management will give you a range of knowledge about theory and research in emergency management. It covers emergency management issues, practices and policies.
