Emergency Management Directors

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Emergency management directors must be top-notch communicators, so it’s a good idea to take as many English, writing, and speech classes as possible in order to develop your presentation, report-writing, and general communication skills. Learning a foreign language—such as Spanish—will be useful if you need to communicate with people who do not speak English fluently. Other recommended classes include business management, accounting, mathematics, statistics, computer science, and social studies.
