Following a March 2020 announcement that it would temporarily suspend in-person, campus-based training delivery, and subsequent July 2020 announcement regarding training resumption, FEMA will not re-open its campuses on August 2, 2020, as anticipated.

FEMA's top priority remains the health and safety of FEMA employees, instructors, students, and visitors on campus, without compromising instruction quality and the student experience. Therefore, FEMA will suspend in-person training and education at both the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) and Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) through at least October 1.

FEMA will continue to monitor the coronavirus pandemic and communicate updates or changes in conditions that may affect reopening of FEMA campuses.

State/Local/Tribal Field Courses (G Code)

A significant portion of EMI’s training is conducted by state emergency management agencies and identified by the EMI-developed/state-delivered G course code. EMI develops and maintains the curriculum while the states tailor the courses to their communities and provide state-level certificates. The G course curriculum is shaped by EMI’s established National G Course Working Group. The Working Group provides broad and diverse input on the needs of the state, local, and tribal stakeholders; current status of the curriculum; and potential opportunities for improvement and growth. Not all of the G coded courses are offered in each state every year. Contact the appropriate state office of emergency management to obtain dates of course offerings and other information on training activities. Contact information for state training offices can be found at
