Training Application-Form 119-25-1 FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI)

As a component of better service to you, please send all training request in PDF format. After reviewing the training request it will be signed by the designated training coordinator and the State Training Officer, and then forwarded to appropriate training agency.

Training provided by the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) is conducted in several formats depending on the location of the training and who is conducting the actual program. Registration for admission to the different courses is distinguished in several ways including the letter prefix / course number for the program as follows:

On-Campus Training “E/B” courses (ex: E-262 Instructional Delivery for Subject Matter Experts) are held either at the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland (“E” courses), or at the FEMA Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama (“B” courses). For these courses the student’s application (Form 119-25-1) and prerequisite documentation should be submitted 45-60 days in advance to the HSEMA Training Officer for review and signature; (State Training Officer Ph: (202) 481-3172). These applications may be sent via e-mail to: [email protected].

HSEMA will forward complete applications to NETC- EMI Admissions for course registration following EMI procedures. Final decisions on acceptance to these courses is entirely handled by NETC Admissions staff based on pre-established criteria. EMI will notify students of course admission decision by regular mail. (HSEMA does not have any control over who is accepted into each course.)

Off-Campus courses taught in a local community with prior approval of EMI are “L” courses. These courses require the student’s application (Form 119-25-1) and prerequisite documentation to be submitted to the local course coordinator as outlined in the specific training announcement for the course.
