In order to assist both proactive and reactive role-players within the public and private spheres, in the implementation of Disaster Risk Management, the development of the unique “Skills Development Programme in Disaster Risk Management” is based on the National Disaster Management Framework (NDMF). This programme consists of four independent modules that are aligned to the Key Performance Areas (KPAs) and Enablers as described in the NDMF.

Due to the demands experienced in the workplace, this programme offers a modular approach, enabling the learner to register per module learning programme. The advantage of this approach is that the practical component supports the working environment specific to the client.
