November kicks off the new grandfathering opportunity for certification of those who may be involved in emergencies that affect the community, whether at a commercial building, an industrial site, a school campus or a community event.
The American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC) has created Council-certified Emergency Operations designations for those who may become involved in emergencies at their workplace or as citizens in the community. These individuals are trained to take action while waiting for the first responders to arrive. At a recent ceremony, Waste Management managers and drivers at several Southern California facilities were awarded ACAC certifications in emergency operations. Along with Waste Management, five other large area corporations received state and local recognition for their commitment to their communities.
The grandfathering period waives the examination and the examination fees for all applicants who qualify via experience.
With current, recent or past experience in emergency operations, individuals may qualify for one of the following certification designations: Council-certified Emergency Operations Coordinator (CEOC), Council-certified Emergency Operations Manager (CEOM) or Council-certified Emergency Operations Professional (CEOP).
More than 100 individuals received ACAC credentials in emergency operations in October. If you have an interest in these ACAC certifications, please do not hesitate to contact us.
