New Learning Opportunities

Basic Emergency Management in the Northwest Territories

Basic Emergency Management in the Northwest Territories (BEM-NWT) was recently added to MACA Learn course offerings in Spring 2024. The course is online, self-directed and free. It is intended to provide a basic understanding of emergency management concepts, including principles and terminology. It also forms the basis for all other emergency management training in the territories. It is not intended to provide specific response procedures for various emergency scenarios.

Community Government Learning and Development (CGLD) is currently developing a training curriculum and associated content for defensive firefighters in the NWT. Northwest Territories-Defensive Firefighter Training (NWT-DFT) will be piloted in Fall 2024 with NWT defensive fire chiefs. It is expected to be accessible in communities starting Spring 2025.
