Contingency Engineer Management Course (CEMC)

The Contingency Engineer Management Course (CEMC) is a week-long in-residence course designed to be task-specific for engineers and will provide the knowledge base needed for exercises, live workshops, and actual deployment to military contingency environments. This course is also available in a self-paced, distance learning format.

Course Overview

Contingency Engineering is focused on the strategic basing, master planning, installation facilities, and project initiation through post-construction turnover from base through theater level. In order to understand that, it's important to know who the engineers in theater are, their command and control, and their roles and responsibilities.

Numerous engineer considerations are included such as funding, acquisition of engineer services and facilities, environmental, reachback, troop construction, and tools to accomplish the mission. This is not a Construction Management nor a Combat Engineer-focused course.

Learning Objectives

  • To gain a thorough understanding of the engineer organizations (strategic to tactical) present in the US Central Command Area of Responsibility (AOR) , from the Combatant Command (COCOM) , to the Army Service Component Command (ASCC), to the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and down into the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters.
  • To possess a working knowledge of each organization’s role and responsibility as it pertains to engineering in a theater of war.

Condition:  Classroom training environment, a slide presentation and simultaneous set of instruction, your resource media DVD, and ample question and answer time.

Standard:   The student understands the various levels of engineering in the contingency environment, and can clearly articulate roles and responsibilities in order to complete a Case Study in a working group format and complete the EOC exam with a score of at least 80 percent.
