FEMA IS-520: Introduction to Continuity of Operations Planning for Pandemic Influenzas (1 hour)
You are required to complete the FEMA IS-520 online training. To successfully complete the assignment, you must complete the training and independent study exam*. You will submit your certificate of completion in the Assignment 1 tab for your grade. This is an “all or nothing” assignment so you will receive a 100 if you submit your certificate of completion or zero (0) if you do not submit the certificate. The course is listed as 1 hour to complete so please plan accordingly. If you have previously completed this training, you can either retake the course or I can assign you another FEMA training (similar time and effort) instead (your certificate must be dated during this term).

*You will be required to have a FEMA Student Identification (SID) number to complete the independent study exams for the training courses. Many of you may already have a SID number for your job or from previous FEMA trainings. If you already have a SID, you need to use your current SID number. If you do not have a SID number, then you can request one at https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid.
Assignments submitted late without advance notice AND instructor approval will receive a 5% per day late penalty and will not be accepted for grading five (5) days past the due date.
