Pacts Ease Path to Further Education in Emergency Management


Pennsylvania College of Technology recently approved articulation agreements with three institutions to help associate-degree graduates further their education with a bachelor’s degree in emergency management technology.

The agreements provide a clear transition to Penn College for graduates of the State University of New York Broome County Community College’s associate degree in homeland security; Delaware Technical and Community College’s associate degree in homeland security and emergency management; and Raritan Valley Community College’s emergency services associate degree.

Students in Penn College’s emergency management technology major practice their future career roles at a City of Williamsport emergency operations center during a simulated tornado disaster.

Students who have completed those associate degrees can enter Penn College’s emergency management technology major with an expectation to complete their bachelor’s degree following an additional four semesters of full-time coursework. The Penn College courses can be completed online.

Emergency managers plan and direct disaster response and crisis management activities, provide disaster preparedness training, and prepare emergency plans and procedures. Some of the most frequent employers of emergency managers are local and state governments, hospitals, colleges and universities, and companies that generate, transmit and distribute electricity.
