Rarely do you attend a class where the material and the instructors are both top-notch [CEMA’s Incident Management Program IMP-201]. Usually one is lacking. The CEMA class was excellent and their instructors were excellent! I would recommend them to anyone who was looking for training. The break-out sessions were extremely beneficial. Our staff is still talking about how nice the training was.
