Graduate Diploma in Development of Internal Protection Plans


There is a lack of professionals specialising in emergency management and civil protection, which can give rise to problems in coordinating responses to emergency situations. Public administration agencies require experts in civil protection who have a broad outlook that enables them to take into account all facets of an emergency, and who can analyse the causes of emergencies, intervene, coordinate responses and make proposals to improve the situation.

This graduate diploma, whose contents are set out in the guidelines issued by the Department of the Interior of the Government of Catalonia (Generalitat), provides training for Public Administration civil protection professionals (local, and autonomous region).

It is a response to the demand from all town councils, however small the town, for professionals who can implement civil protection measures and coordinate emergency teams.

This comprehensive training covers the techniques, procedures and regulations for planning and managing emergencies. The programme is designed to meet the safety and security needs of an advanced society like this one.

- Train future civil protection professionals.
