approved training catalogs
FEMA (DHS) National Training and Education Division (NTED) Catalog: These courses are developed for and/or delivered by institutions and organizations funded directly by FEMA. The majority of these programs are offered at NO COST. This includes programs offered by the institutions below. This site now includes a searchable database of programs offered by federal training partners. Contact the Arizona Training Point of Contact (TPOC) for details.

  • The Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP)
  • The National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC)
  • The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC)
    • National Emergency Training Center
    • National Fire Academy

State Sponsored Course Catalog: These courses are developed for and/or delivered by institutions or organizations other than Federal entities or FEMA, and are sponsored by the SAA or their designated Training Point of Contact. The majority of the courses have fees.

Federal Sponsored Course Catalog: This catalog lists courses developed for and/or delivered by institutions funded by Federal entities other than FEMA. Some of these courses have fees; some are funded through state or federal entities.

Technical Assistance Catalog: This is a comprehensive reference document listing Technical Assistance (TA) services that are presently available, as well as those currently under development. The TA Catalog conveys key programmatic information in a concise, user-friendly format so that State and local jurisdictions can rapidly locate services that meet their individual preparedness and program management needs. These programs are offered at NO COST, but deliveries are limited by state.

resident training: out-of-state
There are many opportunities to attend training programs at various approved locations throughout the country. Each training provider has their own registration form and process that must be followed. Because of the background, discipline and experience needed for many of the Homeland Security training courses offered, applicants attending training courses at the provider’s location (also known as Resident Training) must adhere to the individual provider’s policies and procedures.

These programs are all federally funded, including all travel expenses and minor incidentals. Because the major expenses (airfare, lodging) are taken care of up front by the individual training providers, your agency does not need to be involved in any reimbursement process. You can visit their website for training calendars, course details and registration procedures.

Application Process

After downloading the appropriate application, ensure you have filled it in completely, obtained all necessary signatures, and coordinated the training in accordance with your agency's travel and training policies.

Incomplete applications, or applications without required signatures will not be processed.

Fax the completed application to our Training Office. You will usually receive confirmation of your course date and travel arrangements within a week.

Center for Domestic Preparedness (also Noble Training Center)

The Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) is striving to enhance the protection of Personal Identification Information (PII) for students enrolling into CDP training programs. As such, the CDP is implementing a Student Identification (SID) number process. The intent is to have all students training in CDP training programs (resident, non-resident or indirect) complete the secure online registration. This can be accomplished by going to https://cdp.dhs.gov/elms and creating an account to obtain a CDP SID number.
