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.
