New FEMA Emergency Management Institute Learning Management System

The FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI) is launching a new Learning Management System (LMS); they will be rolling it out in late Spring 2023. It’s supposed to be a more interactive experience with progress tracking. This will only be for independent study courses; be sure to please keep all certificates for the in-class training.

To prepare for this:

  1. Be sure your FEMA student ID (SID) number and contact information is correct and up to date.

FEMA Student Identification (SID) System (dhs.gov)

Please go to this site, and log into FEMA SID – you may need to update your password. Once you’re in, verify all your information is correct by using the tabs to your left.

If you don’t have a FEMA SID, you need one! Register for one.

  1. Request a copy of your student transcript.  Go to this link and follow the instructions.  Request the Student copy.

MTT Course Applications Instructions

MTT Course Application Form

Submit completed and singed by unit commander form to LtCol David Rudawitz for Wing approval and submittal to NESA-MTT.

FEMA Damage Assessment Training

FEMA Damage Assessment Training is temporarily Unavailable.

During last year’s Hurricane Ida event as well as this year's Kentucky flooding and Hurricanes Fiona and Ian, hundreds of our members were able to support CAP's response by taking part in crowdsourced imagery-based damage assessments for FEMA. Over the past several months, FEMA and the CAP Geospatial Team have updated the Damage Assessment tool that is currently being used, and the training associated with it from the lessons learned. If you are interested in supporting this effort, you will need to complete the required training. It involves four modules and should take between 2-6 hours to complete. Beyond the basic knowledge-based lessons and quizzes, interested personnel will need to conduct practice assessments and be graded against them using the actual tool.

All CAP members, cadet or senior member, regardless of where they are in the world can sign up.  Once after completing the training, you can be involved in supporting a disaster response (hurricane, fires, tornadoes, floods, etc.) if called upon to help. Again, regardless of where you live.  For more information go to this webpage.

You must complete the training to be eligible.

To sign up, please click on the following link: Geospatial Damage Assessments Training | FEMA Geospatial Resource Center (arcgis.com) 

Note: please only submit one account request, it may take a day to receive the email with the login details, so please be patient. Submitting multiple requests for access will just create confusion and possibly cause errors in the sign up.

If you have issues or don’t receive an email after the first day, please have them send an email to the help email: fema_dmg_assmnts@cap.gov.  

Once you complete the first 3 modules, it may also take time for the automated email giving you access to the damage assessment module to be sent to you. When you complete the assessments, and select the grids as completed, a final completion email will be sent if you passed.

For additional training, sign up to join the CAP Geospatial Community of Interest (COI), on the National homepage. You will be added to the COI and can ask questions in the FEMA Damage Assessment Training channel and can collaborate with their peers. It will also be where all major disaster damage assessment responses will be conducted from.

FEMA Shelter Field Guide Training

With the increasing need for help at shelters, supporting different organizations when needed is an excellent opportunity for CAP members to support their communities.  The Shelter Field Guide course provides the knowledge and skills required to provide support.  Members please follow the instructions and links under the “To Apply” to apply for the course.  If you have any questions, the best source of information is the EMI Training Point of Contact listed on the attachment. Classes are offered on a first come, first serve basis, so please register as quick as possible in order to have a spot in the course.

 The New Information and Communications Technology Branch for ICS Webinar 6/28/23 1830 PDT

FEMA's recent release of the Information and Communications Technology functional guidance for emergency operations centers (EOCs) and incident management teams (IMTs) represents a sea change for communications units across the response and recovery sectors. The new guidance puts information technology and cybersecurity on the same level as interoperable communications and breaks the communications unit out into its own branch within ICS. In this presentation, we'll talk about the changes recommended, what effect they might have on EOC / IMT operations, the rationale behind and design of the new structure, and what might be expected in the future.

Presenter - Aaron Fox

Aaron Fox is an emergency management coordinator with Washington County, and is responsible for EOC communications. He is also an Oregon credentialed Communications Unit Leader (COML), a communication technician (COMT) with the Oregon State Fire Marshal's Blue incident management team, and a co-chair of the Oregon Statewide Interoperability Executive Committee (SIEC) Technology Committee. In other words, a real communications geek.

Completed Training for FY24

UDF Field Drills
May 4th (Saturday)

Location – UAO Operations Center Aurora and remote

Project Officer - 2d Lt David Mandrell David.Mandrell@orwg.cap.gov

This will be "round two" of our exciting training opportunity for UDF.  This is a “drills” exercise where the focus will be maximizing your time in the field tracking beacons.

Prior to exercise start each team will receive a briefing with the taskings for each of the targets.  We are planning to have 3-4 targets out that simulate the common types of beacons that we’re tasked with finding.  With this exercise, there will be no waiting around base or driving around aimlessly.  The goal of each tasking is to get you started tracking the target quickly.  The targets will all be in the general area from Wilsonville to Salem.

On the day of the exercise, you’ll meet your team at your team’s location of choice.  When you are ready to start, you will check into the mission via radio.  From that point on, you’ll be in touch with mission base via radio and free to tackle any of the taskings/targets you want.  You can run through the taskings in any order, work with another team if you want, or swap roles within your team and try the same one again.  The goal for the day is to maximize hands on experience.

Okay, this sounds fun, what now?  Check with others at your squadron to see if you can form a team.  We are asking members to self-organize and sign up as a team with a vehicle.  If you are unable to find others to form a team, sign up as an individual and we will do our best to match you up with others.

Participants must be at least trainee UDF team (UDF) or trainee Ground Team Members (GTM3).

October 21-22, 2023 – ES Train-the-Trainer (TTT) Classroom Training
Mission No24-T-3787 Project Officer:  Lt Col David Rudawitz

Location: Aurora Operations Center/Aurora Squadron HQ

IC: Lt Col David Rudawitz

ORWG ES program has developed a Train-The-Trainer (TTT) program to train selected personnel in our units to deliver training, classroom and practical, to their unit members for the introductory ES qualification (MS/MO, MRO, MSA, and UDF) as well as a Basic ES Academy applicable to all ES personnel.  In addition to their units, those trained in this new program will also be asked to conduct training for nearby units working as clusters.  The ultimate result is to enable our units to be self-sufficient, individually and collectively, to train and qualify our members for these ES qualifications.

Volunteers will be selected from our units to attend the planned training and then continue on with providing training in our units/area.  Unit commanders have been asked to identify and vet volunteer candidates from their units to be trained as trainers. 

Here are the desired attributes for these candidates:

  • Qualified and experienced in the qualifications that they will teach.  The candidates do not have to, nor are expected to, teach all of the programs.

  • Attend the TTT program as well as attend the classroom component for any of the qualifications for which they will be instructing.

  • Agree to conduct at least one complete program (classroom and practical), a year, for each qualification for which they will be instructing.  This can be in their unit, their unit cluster area, or elsewhere in the Wing.

Note that we are not requiring that these candidates be SETs.  However, it is thought that most will be or will become SETs for the program(s) they will be supporting.

Transportation and RON for Friday and Saturday will be provided using training funds for selected out-of-area students.  In addition, those out-of-area instructor candidates successfully completing the TTT program will also have transportation and RON costs covered to attend their required classroom programs which have not yet been scheduled but are expected to start in January 2024 and occur on the normal wing training weekend (3rd weekend of the month).  Due to very limited funds for transportation and RON, we will be limited in the number of out of area candidates that can be supported.

Requesting A5 & A12 Funded Training - FY24 Air Crew and AP Training and Proficiency Flights

The following paragraphs describe ORWG’s process to request approval to fly training and proficiency sorties under mission symbols A5 (training) and A12 (proficiency). A training flight (A5) is when any aircrew member is a trainee.  It is intended that ES personnel work with their unit ES or Operations officer to coordinate and complete the required paperwork.

Here are the steps:

  1. Determine if the sortie(s) will be proficiency (A12) or training (A5).
  2. If proficiency (A12), select the mission profile (and include in the sortie briefing) from the choices in CAP Standard 71-4 “AFAM-approved Proficiency Flight Profiles.” 
  3. Open the appropriate mission in WMIRS:
    1. A5 Aircrew Training and Proficiency Flights sorties 24-T-3657;
    2. A12 Proficiency sorties  24-A-3382.
  4. Create the proposed sortie(s) in the selected mission.  Complete the CAPF104 data using the WMIRS Sortie Main and Sortie Briefing screens.  Complete all fields and for those that do not apply enter “N/A.”
  5. If an A5 mission the sortie’s Mission Observer or the unit Ops/ES officer sends an email to DL-ORWG-DTY-DirectorofEmergencyServices@ORWGcap.org with the mission number and sortie(s) numbers being proposed. The request will be reviewed (typically within 24 hours) and the requester will be advised by return email if approved or additional information is needed.  A log entry in the IC log for the appropriate mission will be entered by the approver with the approval information to provide a permanent record.  In addition, wing approved FROs, and IC will be copied on the approval email which will serve as notification of the approved sorties.
  6. Fly the approved sortie(s) and fully complete the sortie debriefing in WMIRS, submitting all required receipts.

IAPs for both of these missions that cover the entire fiscal year 2024 have been prepared and uploaded to WMIRS.  ICS201s will no longer be required.  ICs will need to make unit log entries to document their oversight of these flights.

Additional Information for A5 Training Missions

In order to provide near-mission realistic operations and training/proficiency opportunities for AOBDs and MROs, units will be required to plan on including MROs for A5 sorties and highly encouraged for A12 sorties, and the aircrews will exercise all normal mission sortie radio communications (engine start, wheels up, in area, OPS normal, target sighting (if appropriate), RTB, and wheels down) which the MRO will enter into the comm log for the appropriate mission number and assigned to the appropriate sortie.  ReadyOp can be used as appropriate and available where radio facilities are not available.  An AOBD should also be utilized to perform the sortie briefing/debriefing.  Units without organic MROs or AOBDs can solicit support from any other unit and request assistance from the DOS.  The weekly duty AOBD may be contacted for support if needed.  The ORWG Duty Alerting Officer (an IC) will provide IC support for the sorties unless the unit arranges for another IC.  To reach out to ORWG ES personnel for assistance, use the Distribution List - ORWG Distribution List address list.

CAP’s desire is to have the MO be the “Mission Commander (MC).” As the MC, the MO is expected to perform mission command tasks for training as well as actual sorties.  These tasks include the request for approval tasks outlined above. 

As MO your tasks include:

  1. Coordinate with your squadron Ops/ES officer to confirm the aircrew is flying an A5 training mission.
  2. Coordinate with your aircrew members to determine the outcomes of the proposed sortie(s).  Ensure those outcomes are in your sortie briefing.
  3. Open the appropriate mission in WMIRS.
  4. Complete the sortie information and briefing pages.
  5. Arrange for appropriate mission base staff, e.g. MRO, flight line marshallers, etc.
  6. Send the email to DL-ORWG-DTY-DirectorofEmergencyServices@ORWGcap.org .
  7. Lead the aircrew briefing.
  8. Manage the sortie ensuring all training objectives are met.
  9. Debrief the sortie.  Ensure you note whether the training objectives were met or not.  If not, explain why.

Coordinate with MP/TMP to ensure fuel receipts are uploaded and an e108 is submitted.

When training Mission Scanners, it is also necessary to provide them with a realistic scenario that includes visual target(s) to find.  On actual missions, only one crew typically will locate the target.  However, many crews may spot objects of interest such as similar vehicles, out of place colored objects, etc.  MSs (as well as MOs and MPs) when training for visual search, need to be provided with actual targets simulating real search mission conditions.  On a MS’s very first training flight, a target object is recommended by not required as this first flight typically provides the new in-training MS with an orientation to CAP aircraft, crew management.  On subsequent flights for MSs, there must be one or more suitable targets for the MS (and the rest of the crew) to spot.  These can be a vehicle, parachute, fabric simulated aircraft, other simulated or actual aircraft major parts, manakins, and actual personnel.  Details of the target, just like on an actual mission, are to be included in the WMIRS briefing for the sortie(s) and will be reviewed as part of the sortie approval process.

FEMA Course Application Approvals

All members are encouraged to attend Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) developed courses hosted on campus at Emergency Management Institute (EMI), at a regional delivery site, or sponsored by the states. In general, CAP’s agreement with EMI is that any CAP member wishing to attend E courses, those resident courses held at EMI, are expected to complete the online application at DHS-FEMA General Admissions Application or the FEMA Form 119-25-1 (Block 22) and have it signed by their Wing Commander, and this generally applies to other courses run through their system/process as well; the host of the course determines if this will be done by an online application or by the use of the form and obviously has greater control over applications.

Additionally, for those interested in attending a FEMA Train-the-Trainer Instructor course on behalf of CAP, CAP’s agreement with EMI is for the member to have the online application or form signed by the CAP Director of Operations or designee.  It is normally recommend completing the electronic application if given the option as it is very quick for processing and makes it easier for EMI, as well, so it goes smoother. To complete the form, each student must have a Federal Student Identification number (SID) which can be obtained at Register for your FEMA SID (dhs.gov); they can’t just leave it blank or use their CAPID instead.

FEMA Shelter Field Guide Training

With the increasing need for help at shelters, supporting different organizations when needed is an excellent opportunity for CAP members to support their communities.  The Shelter Field Guide course provides the knowledge and skills required to provide support.  Members please follow the instructions and links under the “To Apply” to apply for the course.  If you have any questions, the best source of information is the EMI Training Point of Contact listed on the attachment. Classes are offered on a first come, first serve basis, so please register as quick as possible in order to have a spot in the course.
