Where to take PIO Training

Normally, the Division of Emergency Management provides in-person PIO training throughout the state. Due to the pandemic, the Division’s responsibilities, and our instructors’ work responsibilities in the pandemic, all in-person PIO courses have been canceled and will be rescheduled once it is safe to do so. See the DEM training calendar once in-person courses resume.

In the meantime, feel free to check out the following independent study courses from FEMA.
