Independent Study Courses

The Emergency Management Institute (EMI) offers more than 40 independent study courses. These are self-paced courses designed for people who have emergency management responsibilities and the general public. For most of our courses you will need to download and print the materials. Others are interactive courses that you can take directly over the internet on the NETC Virtual Campus. All are offered free of charge to those who qualify for enrollment. Each independent study course includes lessons with practice exercises and a final examination. Students who score 75 percent or better are issued a certificate of achievement from EMI.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Integration Center (NIC) provides the RTLT to support the implementation of the National Preparedness System. Nationally typed resources support a common language for the mobilization of resources (equipment, teams, units, and personnel) prior to, during, and after major incidents.
