To reduce the risk of identity theft, FEMA, the National Fire Academy (NFA), and the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) are eliminating the use of the Social Security Number (SSN), where possible when applying for training. FEMA has implemented the use of a Student Identification (SID) number. You will be required to obtain and use the SID in applying for NFA or EMI courses. This number will be used in place of the SSN on your application.

Enrollment in EMI courses is
generally limited to U.S. residents; however, each year a limited number
of international participants are accommodated in EMI courses. To take a course at EMI, applicants must meet the selection
criteria and prerequisites specified for each course. Participants may
not take the same course more than once.
A very limited number of opportunities exist for non-U.S.
citizens to attend EMI courses. Click here
for more Foreign Application information.
Seats are filling up fast, so it's important
to apply early. Please click here for EMI on-campus courses application timelines.
