1. Go to https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid/register (Copy this address into your internet search window or hold click on the link).
2. Fill it out completely and record your student identification number because you will need it to take the FEMA course tests.
3. The required FEMA courses are:
    a. IS-100 B: Introduction to Incident Command System
    b. IS-200 B: ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents
    c. IS-700 A: National Incident Management System (NIMS) An Introduction
    d. IS-775: EOC Management and Operations
    e. IS-800 C: National Response Framework, An Introduction
    f. IS-75: Military Resources in Emergency Management
4. The test questions are very specific. The answers are not obvious and the FEMA course will not be open while you take the test. So, having the test or materials in word document or .pdf will help with finding the answer. Basically, it is an open book test.
5. When you pass each test, you will need to obtain an electronic copy of the certificate. Send each certificate to MERT Academy admin. for credit.
