Emergency Management Certification
At the 1998 Annual FEPA Conference, the membership adopted the recommendations of the organization's Certification Commission, accepting the draft FEPA Certification Criteria as presented. The first FPEM and FAEM designations were presented at the 1999 annual conference in Daytona Beach. In 2002, the Certification Commission developed the first certification for volunteers in the State of Florida (Certified Emergency Management Volunteer – FEMV).
All certifications are valid for five (5) years.
