Core Competency Certification Course
for Disaster Medicine and Public Health
The best disaster responders are ready at a moment’s notice. They must therefore be well-trained and competent before they deploy.
Until now, few responders have learning opportunities available in the cities where they live. Even fewer are able to actually demonstrate their competency before the disaster strikes.
In C4 Seminars, Dr. Keim comes to your home town to teach you everything you need to know. He then personally evaluates and documents your achievement.
In this engaging 3-day program, Dr. Mark Keim personally walks you through each of the 11 core competencies of disaster medicine and public health.
He coaches you through simple, time-saving steps on how to achieve and demonstrate each core competency. He then provides you with a signed certificate of competency.
All-inclusive group rate of $5000
This one low rate includes: promotional materials, travel and honorarium for training up to 100 students.
Book the venue and invite the guests. DisasterDoc will do the rest!

HEAR FROM OTHERS THAT KNOW MARK
“It was our pleasure to have Mark Keim deliver the keynote address at the annual conference of the National Environmental Health Association. From the initial coordination of the presentation through to Mark’s actual presentation, it was a joy to work with this talented speaker.
Mark doesn’t just present information. He biographically inserts himself into his presentations thereby creating an authenticity for his messages and lessons that make his presentations both more believable and more personal. His ability to tell stories also enhanced the stickiness of his presentation thus insuring that it had a lasting impact on his audience. To this day, I remember several of his stories, including how he took lessons as a kid from his weekly reader and then applied them in life and death situations in his adult life. That’s powerful stuff!”
-Nelson Fabian, Executive Director and CEO of the National Environmental Health Association July 2014
