EIIP Classroom Online Presentation
University of Richmond
The Virtual Classroom topic for January 6, 1999 was the Emergency Services Management degree programs at the University of Richmond, and the Crisis Operations Manager certification. The discussion was led by special guest speaker, Walter Green, Assistant Professor, MPA, CEM and Program Director. Walter also serves as Director of Emergency Operations for the Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services and ESF-8 manager for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Green stated that the School of Continuing Studies at the University of Richmond included degree programs in paralegal, human resource management, information systems, liberal arts, and emergency services management. The programs contain an undergraduate 30 semester hour Certificate, an Associate's degree, a Bachelor's degree and a Post Baccalaureate Certificate. Specifically, the emergency services management is an interdisciplinary program involving fire, emergency medical services, law enforcement, emergency management, business continuity, voluntary agencies, or anyone with an emergency role. As explained by Green, the program emphasizes how to manage emergency services in the context of the entire community in the 21st century --- in short, managing the integrated emergency management system.
The emergency services management program is based on the wide variety of course offerings with classes scheduled primarily in the evenings and on weekends. This year the School of Continuing Studies at the University of Richmond started Internet delivery in a 15 sessions online with two Saturday sessions on campus format.
