The Governor’s Division of Emergency Management provides emergency management training. Regional liaison officers are also available to assist city officials with their training and other emergency management needs. Currently, the Division of Emergency Management provides these classes at no charge and will pay for a city official’s travel expenses to attend one of its classes. A public officer who completes the training shall be provided with a certificate of course completion. See Tex. Government Code §418.005(e). Such certificate shall be maintained and made available for public inspection. Id.
Training on NIMS is also offered by the TDEM and may be taken in-person or online. A listing of NIMS classes can be found at the Texas Department of Public Safety's NIMS Training page.
