The National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) under the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India is offering e-Learning courses on Disaster Risk Management in collaboration with Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), The World Bank, Washington.

The aim of the e-Learning Programme is to raise the level of awareness and preparedness as well as to enhance analytical skills and professional competencies of key stakeholders in different areas of Disaster Risk Management and Mitigation. The courses are designed specifically to build competencies of disaster management professionals, development practitioners and general public in India and SAARC countries. The programme is also beneficial for those who are not able to attend or does not have sufficient time to attend interactive programmes either at NIDM or in other training centres. The participants enjoy the benefit of flexi-time and flexi-space. They can log on to the course from anywhere and at a time. They can attend discussions and course related activities whenever and wherever they feel convenient. The courses are free from any face to face discussion or appearance in the final examination. The online Discussion Forum allows participants to share their views, experiences, documents, images and videos. Participants can have options to receive Discussion Forum entries in their personal e-mail accounts.

Unlike classroom based pedagogy, there is no examination system in the NIDM’s web based courses. The success in the course largely depends on certain parameters like completion of personal profiles, country profile, participation in the discussion forum, timely submission of assignments and end of the course projects etc. On the basis of active involvement in their concerned courses, participants are evaluated and graded. There are two main categories of online courses being offered by the NIDM - Comprehensive Natural Disaster Risk Management Framework and Thematic. The Comprehensive Natural Disaster Risk Management Framework Course is open for all those who are interested in acquiring Comprehensive Natural Disaster Risk Management Framework knowledge on disaster management, mitigation, preparedness etc. The Thematic Courses are offered to those who have either completed the Comprehensive Natural Disaster Risk Management Framework Course or having Thematic qualifications / experiences in their related domains.

Our Course Participant Says...

Mr. Raju Narayan Swamy
IAS; (Secretary to the Govt. of Kerala)

Online NIDM courses remind me of the famous dictum regarding 'Education', Education does not begin with the learning of the alphabet. It begins with a mother's look, a father's node of approbation, a sister's gentle pressure of the hand, a brother's noble act of forbearance.” Having completed one online course and quarter way through the present course on risk sensitive land use planning, I am of the opinion that the courses are extremely useful. The presentations are treasure-troves of knowledge, the discussion forum is brimming with activity and the assignment and end of course project are real testing grounds of the level of skill earned. The courses, no doubt, ring an alarm bell. They highlight persistent and self defeating neglect of the disaster mitigation issues in planning disclosure and action in spite of the overwhelming intensity of the problems that they represent. They highlight the need to move from rhetoric to action. I have no option but to reframe the famous lines below to give you a bird's eye view of NIDM courses:

“In some faint dawn
In some dim eve
Like a gesture of light
Like a dream of delight…..”

Hats off to the NIDM team.

Prof. Rashmi Ashtt
Principal, Sat Priya School Of Architecture And Design, Rohtak,Haryana

Being an Architect, I always felt like contributing in Disaster Risk Mitigation by designing Risk Resilient Buildings and promoting students to adopt best practices in Structural Mitigation through Architectural design. NIDM has provided opportunity to actualize these thoughts by providing facts, figures , learning materials, focused and dedicated faculty and coordinators who are guiding so well and available every moment online. This online course has given the golden opportunity to upgrade myself under the umbrella of most reputed institutions of the world like the World Bank Institute, Washington, the National Institute of Disaster Management and GFDRR without hampering me on professional Front and daily schedule.

Squadron leader PN Subramaniam
Deputy Director (Indian Air Force), New Delhi

I am an Armed Forces Officer serving in the Indian Air Force for the last one decade. I have been involved in the Disaster Management activity more than a couple of times. I came to know about the Online Course on Comprehensive Natural Disaster Risk Management Framework through the print media.

The course content available online in the website gave me the flexibility to access the study material wherever I traveled. The Discussion Forum also gave me an opportunity to broaden my learning aptly assisted by the facilitators review regularly, who kept encouraging us to broaden our horizon through active participation. The helpful attitude of the Programme Manager, Task Manager and the Facilitators deserve a certain mention. Thank you NIDM – WBI to provide me a hassle free environment to understand and learn the DM concepts in a very meaningful manner.

This is a very good initiative taken by government of India and World Bank Institute. The uniqueness of these courses is that, it is completely online and so, has a global reach. Any individual residing in any state/country can have an access of full knowledge and new experience through this learning environment. It also teaches individual participant to be more disciplined and punctual. This is the beginning of a new horizon towards a disaster free world.
