Community Training

Train for an Emergency


Training provides first responders, homeland security officials, emergency management officials, private and non-governmental partners, and other personnel with the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform key tasks required during a specific emergency situation.

National Training Program (NTP)

The National Training Program (NTP) provides an organized approach to training for emergency managers and emergency response providers across the nation that supports the National Preparedness Guidelines. The NTP will provide policy, guidance, and tools that address training design, development, delivery, and evaluation, as appropriate.


FEMA Training Organizations

The Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) develops and delivers advanced training for emergency response providers, emergency managers, and other government officials from state, local, and tribal governments. The CDP offers more than 50 training courses at its resident campus in Anniston, Alabama focusing on incident management, mass casualty response, and emergency response to a catastrophic natural disaster or terrorist act.

You can also find training opportunities at the Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community (C3) Voluntary Program Webinar Series.
