The FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI) will be supporting these courses for FEMA Region III All Hazards Incident Management Teams (AHIMT) in 2014.  These All-Hazards Position Specific Training Courses are designed for individuals who are members of (or in the process of joining) an All-Hazards Incident Management Team recognized by their state. As these are FEMA regional class offerings, there are limited openings per jurisdiction and this registration process IS NOT a first-come / first-served basis. Applicants will be screened for affiliation with a state recognized All Hazards Incident Management Team, and each AHIMT will also prioritize their applicants based on Team staffing needs.  Non-AHIMT affiliated applicants will be ranked lowest for course admission and admitted strictly on a space available basis.

Course offerings:

Week 1:   L 956: Liaison Officer: January 13 – 14 , 2014 FULL  L 962: Planning Section Chief: January 13 – 16, 2014 FULL 
Week 2:   L 958: Operations Section Chief:  February 10 – 13, 2014 FULL  L 964: Situation Unit Leader: February 10 – 14, 2014 FULL
