In today’s competitive world, any edge you have over other candidates seeking the same position can make the difference between success and frustration. For those employed, ensuring that your skills are sharp and your knowledge base is deep is a key to continued success. Whether you are seeking employment, or currently employed, the Maryland Professional Emergency Management Program (MDPEMP) designation may be a major career-enhancing credential.

The MDPEMP designation is a Maryland recognized professional certification for emergency managers who have worked to enhance emergency preparedness, prevention, response, recovery, and mitigation in and for the State of Maryland or one of its local jurisdictions.
