If you are interested in attending, please reply with an e-mail with your name and contact information. Please note that at the end of the class you will have the opportunity to take a test for FEMA certification. The test is not mandatory to attend but if you take the entire course, you should not have trouble passing.
Before the class, I would suggest you take the on-line FEMA Continuity of Operations Awareness Course. You can access the course on the internet at the FEMA Emergency Management Institute (http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is546.asp).
