TIEMS TQC Certification Objectives
TIEMS has concluded a survey, which asked the international emergency management and disaster response community experts to give their opinion on content and structure of TIEMS TQC Certification, and the report with the conclusions of this survey is find below.
TIEMS TQC Curriculum requirements will cover the different aspects of emergency and risk management recognized standards and best practise in an international perspective, related to all phases of the emergency and risk management cycles. The TIEMS TQC Curriculum requirements can be covered through courses offered within TIEMS International Education Networks; TIEMS International Education Network of Excellence (TIENE) and TIEMS International Recommended and Recognized Education Insitutions (TIRREI) and other institutions worldwide provideing relevant courses. TIEMS Academy will be the portal to TIEMS TQC Curriculum, made available on line through TIEMS TQC Web Platform.

The TIEMS Academy Structure
Two of TIEMS overall education goals are; "Develop a Curriculum for TIEMS TQC Certification, through Worldwide Cooperation" and "Contribute to Capacity Building in Countries where little or no Education and Training in Emergency Management and Disaster Response (EMDR) is Available". These goals are guiding TIEMS in establishing TIEMS International Education Network. TIEMS recognizes many excellent educationa (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) programs and training centers worldwide offering education and training in EMDR, and TIEMS is seeking cooperation with the best ones for fulfilling above goals, and establishing TIEMS International Education Network. Through this network, and TIEMS own courses, TIEMS intends to offer the courses and training necessary for preparing the TIEMS TQC Certification candidates for their education and examination to become TIEMS TQC Certified.
TIEMS International Education Network
The Playesr and their roles in TQC Certification
As shown in above figure, TIEMS Education network comprises the following institutions worldwide offering courses and training in Emergency Management and Disaster Response (EMDR):
TIEMS is recommending all courses to be offered on-line, but will also accept courses to be taught in classrooms.
How to build a TIEMS TQC Curricula
The Candidates for TIEMS TQC Certification can build a TQC Curricula the following ways as indicated in above figure:
Howevver, TIEMS Mandatory Preparation Courses need to be added to above Curricula building, and will be offered by an institution in TCNMP.
Through its courses and integrated programs, TIENE and TRREI serves together with TIEMS as the international focal point for the development and delivery of emergency management training to enhance the capabilities of State, Local, and Government Officials; Volunteer Organizations; and the public and private sectors to minimize the impact of disasters and emergencies on the public. TIENE and TRREI serves together with TIEMS the international emergency management community, offering courses to help build critical skills that emergency managers need to function effectively in mass consequence events.
Below figures illustrate TIEMS International Education Network and how to build a TIEMS TQC Certification Curricula:
The figure is only an illustration of how TIEMS likes to build out TIEMS international educational network. TIEMS Chapters are established chapters.
The figure is only illustrating how TIEMS assumes a TIEMS TQC Certification Curricula can be built by a TQC certification candidate
Interest to be a partner in TIEMS International Educational Network?
TIEMS TQC Certification Curriculum will be developed together with TIEMS Education Partners worldwide, comprising universities and training institutions and other institutions and companies, which can add value to TIEMS TQC Certification Curriculum. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will guide the cooperation between TIEMS and these Education Partners, and below is a presentation of those insitutions TIEMS has agreed a MOU with at present. New Partners with interest in TIEMS TQC Certification development are welcome.
