International Center for Emergency Management Education


TAKE FEMA-Certified Courses at FAU! FAU's ICEME has partnered with the National Disaster Preparedness Training Center in Hawaii to deliver FEMA-Certified courses to our region. The next two to be offered coming soon...

Established in 2016, Florida Atlantic University's International Center for Emergency Management Education (ICEME) endeavors to be a superior provider of cutting-edge, world-class training, certification and degree-level academic programs, leadership development and hands-on training in emergency, crisis and disaster management.

We believe the more competent we become at preparing for a disaster or crisis, delivering care during and after an emergency, the more resilient the agencies, their people, the facilities and by extension, the community becomes. Our Center will deliver the hands-on, experiential training and academics to facilitate improving these competencies in crisis and disaster preparation, response and mitigation.

What makes us unique?
FAU’s International Center for Emergency Management Education is a partner with a major international hospital, Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Israel.
