Emergency Management Institute Goes to Online Applications for Resident and Basic Academy Field-Delivered Courses

FEMA's Emergency Management Institute (EMI) will now be accepting online applications for the following courses that start on August 19, 2019 or later:

  • EMI resident courses ("E" courses)
  • Field deliveries of the National Emergency Management Basic Academy courses (L0101-0105 and L0110).

Applicants for these EMI courses should no longer submit a paper application form.

To apply, go to the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) Online Admissions Application page to find a list of what is needed to complete the application process. Registration for any EMI course requires having a FEMA Student Identification (SID) number. TO obtain a FEMA SID, go to the Student Identification System page.

Currently the NETC Online Admissions Application is not compatible with mobile devices.

For questions or assistance in using the new online system to apply for courses, contact NETC Admissions at (301) 447-1035 or send an email to
