Other FEMA Courses
We highly recommend that all LAUSD employees take Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) courses to help prepare themselves and their families for disasters, as well as to assist them at work. The courses listed on this page offer training on specific topics. All FEMA courses now require a FEMA Student ID (FEMA SID) number, which must be applied for by the individual here. Please do not contact anyone in LAUSD regarding your FEMA SID number.
After you have completed each course, please email a copy of your certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org for our database.
