Take your career to the next level!


The Oregon Certified Emergency Management Specialist (ORCEMS) program is in place to raise and maintain professional standards in emergency management and to certify achievement of those standards within the profession in Oregon. A cooperative effort between Oregon Emergency Management and the Oregon Emergency Management Association, the program requires extensive documentation of the applicant's qualifications, experience and training.


  • Get credit for all you’ve achieved in the emergency management profession
  • Distinguish yourself in the Oregon Emergency Management field
  • Challenge yourself to continued professional development
  • Complete an average of 50% of the requirements needed to apply for the IAEM Certified Emergency Manager credential


If you are not a full-time Emergency Manager or have enough time and credits to qualify for the full ORCEMS program, you may qualify for the Associate Oregon Certified Emergency Management Specialist (A-ORCEMS) certification. On achieving the A-ORCEMS designation, applicants will have also met at least 25% of the International Association of Emergency Manager’s (IAEM) Certified Emergency Manager application and re-certification requirements.
