Online instructor-led courses are scheduled offerings that you must apply for.
These courses range from 4 to 6 weeks in length. You are required to complete weekly assignments and papers, participate in class discussions online, and read various articles as the instructor assigns them. While most courses are conducted asynchronously, some courses may contain synchronous components.
- If you don't have one, register for a Student Identification Number. This number is needed on your application.
- Use the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) Online Admissions Application to apply for your course. A link to the application is also provided on each course description page.
