Helpful Hints in Applying for Training:

  • Know the EMI or NFA course code prior to beginning the application process for the training you would like to attend (see catalogs at EMI Course Catalog or NFA Course Catalog
  • Know your FEMA Student Identification (SID) number prior to applying for a course. If you do not have a SID number please obtain one at https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid
  • If the training you are applying for requires you to submit any form of supporting documentation (e.g. resume, checklist, transcripts, organizational charts, recommendations, prerequisite training completions, exercise experience, etc.) please prepare this documentation in PDF form prior to applying for the course. The maximum size for each PDF is 1 MB. If you do not know how to prepare a PDF document please seek information technology (IT) support.
  • All EMI and NFA applications require an electronic approval from the head of your sponsoring organization. You will need the name, title, and email address of this person to submit the application.
  • Non-Federal applicants for EMI courses must use the appropriate State Training Officer (STO) as “Head of Organization”. STO contact information can be found here https://www.firstrespondertraining.gov/frts/statecontacts
