We haven‘t visited the Federal Emergency Management Agency‘s (FEMA) National Training and Education Division (NTED) website for a few years. This site lists free training opportunities for first responders, including emergency management functions such as ARES. Some trainings are in classrooms, some are online at specific times and others are online to be taken at the user‘s convenience. NTED features an online catalog and several training catalogs that can be downloaded to your computer or smartphone.

To view the NTED site for yourself, go to First Responder Training System .
