Leadership development programme

This is Aotearoa New Zealand’s only university-accredited emergency management leadership development programme.

It provides professional training for response and recovery leaders across the all-hazards National Security System working at local, regional, and national levels. It meets the specific needs of those currently in leadership roles, as well as those seeking an educational pathway into response and recovery leadership roles.

The programme is made up of two parts:

  • Part 1 - a seven-week online interactive course and assessment, and
  • Part 2 - a 4.5-day face-to-face course and assessment held at various locations around New Zealand.

Virtual masterclass series

Our highly interactive evidence-based sessions are delivered via Zoom over two 3-hours sessions. They will benefit individuals wanting to learn new tools and build their knowledge and capabilities as an emergency management leader.

Bespoke training options

We offer in-house and virtual learning and development solutions tailored for you and your team.
