Through FEMA’s Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS.gov) partnership with the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), both prospective and current Certified Emergency Managers (CEMs®) and Associate Emergency Managers (AEMs) now have a new way to contribute toward their certification and re-certification requirements by using the Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS.gov) program.
CEMs and AEMs can share documents on LLIS.gov to contribute toward their certification and re-certification requirements. For example, certification candidates may author and submit a document about a lesson learned or innovative practice based on their personal emergency management experience, interviews, After Action Reports or independent research. These documents can be part of your job duties (with the exception for service and leadership roles). Submission templates for lessons learned and innovative practices are available on LLIS.gov. Webinars and videos will also be eligible in the coming months.
Visit the “Get Involved” page on LLIS.gov for additional details including guidelines and submission criteria. If you have additional questions, please contact Jenny Sokatch at Jenny.Sokatch@fema.dhs.gov or (202) 786-9696.
