**A course number that has a letter after the number is a newer version of the course ***
To signup, go to this web page, http/training.fema.gov/IS/
If you do not complete each course in one sitting , you will have to start it all over again. so do not fool around while taking this, you can not save it.
At the end you will fill out personal info for your certif and you may or may not get a certificate in your email, or it may come by mail in a week. when you get your certif, forward me a copy or make a copy for your training files. If your training file does not have a copy, you never had the training !
More online courses will follow, do not jump beyond what is required. for more info or clarification call Dave Ortiz, 757-254-2898 - C, your Disaster Preparedness Coordinator.
