COVID-19 Information for National Emergency Training Center Students

Note: effective July 28, 2021, all Federal employees, onsite contractors, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status or level of COVID transmission in your local area, are required to wear a mask inside all DHS workspaces and Federal buildings.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings. We also continue to evaluate the local and national situation and will provide regular updates.

Students will be notified in advance concerning the status of their on-campus course offering.

We thank you for your understanding, and we invite you to visit our extensive catalog of Independent Study Courses as well as classroom courses available by virtual delivery.

Preparedness and Technology Curriculum

  • Most of the Preparedness and Technology courses are conducted at the local and State level.
  • The current Preparedness and Technology menu of resident courses focuses on radiological hazards, terrorism,
    and hazardous materials. Resident courses include those specific to the Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) program and those generic to any radiological hazard. The preparedness resident courses include emergency planning for radiological incidents, as well as skill and exercise-based courses for gathering and analyzing radiological data.
  • Emergency management training for schools can be found under the Mitigation Curriculum.
