The Australian Emergency Management Institute (AEMI) is a Centre of Excellence for knowledge and skills development in the national emergency management sector. As a part of the Attorney-General’s Department, AEMI provides a range of education, training, professional development, information, research and community awareness services to the nation and our region.
AEMI is located at Mount Macedon in Victoria and was opened in 1956 as the Australian Civil Defence School. Since then, AEMI has had a significant role in building the capacity and professionalism of the emergency management sector in Australia.
The institute continues to focus on improving knowledge and development in the emergency management sector. It supports broader national security capability development efforts to build community resilience to disaster.
AEMI offers the Advanced Diploma of Public Safety (Emergency Management) as well as nationally accredited and professional development programs. AEMI also hosts a range of workshops based on the national research and innovation agenda agreed by the Australia-New Zealand Emergency Management Committee.
