On April 1st, 2015 the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) will begin to use the FEMA Student Identification (SID) number when submitting your Independent Study (IS) final exam. You must continue to use your SSN or Alternate ID number until April 1st; however, we recommend registering a FEMA SID today: https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid.
This course is a prerequisite to the resident course, S301, Radiological Emergency Response Operations (RERO). The goal of this independent study course is to provide a learning experience in which participants demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of radiological protection and response principles, guidelines, and regulations to prepare them for the operations course (RERO). Only those people who will be approved to attend the RERO course should take this independent study course.
