Change to Class Registrations

The SC Fire Academy hosts a number of National Fire Academy classes through direct delivery or hand-off classes.  Effective October 1, 2012, a FEMA Student Identification Number (SID) is required when registering for a NFA course or applying for a SCFA class that is under the FEMA grant category. Lists of the affected classes are provided below.


It is the responsibility of the student to obtain this number prior to coming to class or submitting a registration direct to the NFA.  We do not require a FEMA SID number on the SC Fire Academy registration form but we provide a NFA application form during the class for you to obtain NFA transcript credit. This is where you will need a FEMA SID number.
