The curriculum for each learning path consists of a combination of FEMA online courses and HSEM training classes and workshops.

HSEM pays for all instructor expenses, course materials, and room rental fees for HSEM training. Learners are responsible for all other expenses associated with training.
Professional certifying bodies such as the Police Officer Standards and Training (POST) Board provide continuing education credit for some training courses if application for credit is made in advance of the course. Applicants seeking continuing education are responsible for maintaining their own records of training. HSEM training is POST Board approved and POST course numbers are available.
