Youth Preparedness Camp Online Training

The Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) supports the implementation of youth preparedness training and programs across Texas. The Youth Preparedness Online Training Program is an initiative developed by the FEMA Region 6 Youth Preparedness Council, in conjunction with the TxSSC. This Council has identified five FEMA Independent Study training courses that constitute the basic training required to begin educating youth in the area of community preparedness. These courses also introduce participants to additional trainings opportunities that will allow them to better provide basic assistance to their family and neighbors in the event of a disaster within the community.

An individual who completes the required coursework will receive a Youth Preparedness Certificate of Completion from the FEMA Region 6 Youth Preparedness Council in conjunction with the Texas School Safety Center.

The five courses required to complete this program are listed below. These courses are Independent Study courses available online at no charge through the Emergency Management Institute (EMI). EMI will issue course certificates upon the successful completion of each class.

Once all of the training requirements are completed, students will forward ALL 5 electronic copies of their course completion certificates to yptraining@txstate.edu. A printable certificate of completion for the online Youth Preparedness Training Program will be emailed to the student.
