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.

Independent Study Offices is currently experiencing technical difficulties and has a very limited capability to provide technical support. We expect this issue to be resolved no later than 12:00 EDT, tomorrow, 8/4/2020.


Mitigation Curriculum

  • The Mitigation Curriculum provides training for Federal, State, local, and tribal governments that are working to eliminate or reduce the long-term risk to human life and property posed by earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, dam failures, landslides, hurricanes, and other natural hazards.
  • The curriculum includes training courses of varying lengths. Resident offerings* generally last 4 days while field* courses last 1 to 2 days. Some offerings are appropriate only for resident delivery because they require instruction by representatives of a number of Federal agencies and facilitators located in the Washington, DC, area.
  • Many of the courses offered in this curriculum area directly support the training requirements of Federal
    programs, such as the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the National Hurricane Program, and the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP). Participants in these courses learn about program regulations and policies and are provided with the tools and techniques for implementing mitigation strategies.

Note:

  • Resident Offerings: Courses delivered on EMI campus
  • Field Offerings: Courses delivered off EMI campus
