If you are going to register for any FEMA training you must have a Student Identification Number (SID). A FEMA Student Identification (SID) number is a unique number generated and assigned to anyone who needs or is required to take training provided by a FEMA organization. Your FEMA SID uniquely identifies you throughout the FEMA organization and all of its agencies. The goal is for your FEMA SID to serve as your personal identification number instead of your Social Security Number (SSN) in support of FEMA's effort to decrease/cease the use of SSN for identifying and tracking individuals.
A FEMA SID is required to register for and participate in any training provided by FEMA agencies. All FEMA training providers' registration systems and enrollment procedures require a valid FEMA SID. Your FEMA SID serves as your personal identification number and merges/links/connects/combines all of your FEMA training records under one account to simplify keeping track of all your FEMA training accomplishments.
If you do not have a Student Identification Number (SID) please follow the link below. You will need one to apply for any FEMA course.
