Interested in a FEMA Independent Study Course?

1st Step - Sign up for a FEMA Student Identification Number (FEMA SID)

PURPOSE: The FEMA Student Identification (SID) number is used as the unique individual identifier for all applicants requesting training at FEMA training facilities. The FEMA SID number is used as the applicant's unique student identifier for the following areas: training records and continuing education credit through the International Association for Continuing Education and Training. Some facilities may still require the social security number for training medical records, travel authorizations, and travel reimbursement. * Courses can be previewed without a FEMA SID, but you will not be allowed to take the final exam and print a certificate of achievement that documents you took and passed the class.
