IS-247 (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) is another short course (perhaps 2 to 3 hours of reading and the short test) that covers the newly implemented warning and notification system. I learned quite a bit about the system that I was totally unaware of.
I would recommend both of these courses based on my experience, if for nothing other than providing some additional awareness of the subjects. In addition, the opportunity to garner some free training from a recognized partner is reason enough.

I just completed IS-910 in less than 45 minutes, pretty basic stuff, easy reading comprehension. I had forgotten about FEMA courses so thanks for the reminder and I know what I'm doing for the rest of my sick leave.
