Statement about in-person, campus-based training (October 21, 2020)

Previously, FEMA announced suspension of in-person, campus-based training delivery at its training campuses due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

FEMA’s top priority remains the health and safety of FEMA employees, instructors, students, and visitors on campus, without compromising instruction quality and the student experience. Therefore, FEMA continues the suspension of in-person training and education at both the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) and Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP).

FEMA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and communicate updates or changes in conditions that may affect reopening of its training campuses.

Responders with questions about CDP training should contact the training coordinator for their respective region:
