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.
