Members of FEMA US&R Task Forces should complete the exact same CBT course (Course Code: 9P7130) at www.esf9training.org which is a Learning Management System created by TEEX for the FEMA National US&R Response System designed for task forces to automatically track all of their training certificates, qualifications, expiration, and personnel ability to deploy.
Participants must bring their certificate of completion on the first day of class. Participants that have not completed the CBT portion will be removed from the class.
Course Completion Requirements
Each student must bring the following items to the Instructor-Led Training course:
- Task Force BDU Uniforms/T-shirts for all class days.
