The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is in the process of eliminating the use of the Social Security Number (SSN) when applying for FEMA training.
National Fire Academy (NFA) students interested in applying for FY 2013 on-campus (10-/6-/2-day) and off-campus (10- and 6-day) courses will need to register for an interim Student Identification Number (SID) that will be used in place of the SSN. This number can be obtained through the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) Training Administration System (CTAS).
Applications for FY 2013 NFA courses that do not include a SID will not be processed.
