Training Request Policy

How to Apply for/Schedule a Course Delivery

In order to attend a training class delivered by one of the National Training and Education (NTED's) training partners, the SAA TPOC (Training Point of Contact) must coordinate the request through the NPD Centralized Scheduling and Information Desk (CSID). Requests for in-residence training may be made for individual participants and/or groups of participants. Mobile training deliveries are only to be requested once a need has been identified and it is certain the hosting jurisdiction can meet the minimum attendance requirements. (Each individual course has a minimum number of participants who must attend mobile training.)

To begin the process, the SAA TPOC contacts CSID to convey information about the course he/she wants to schedule, the number of people he/she wants to send to the course, and the dates he/she would like to request. CSID acts as a broker between the SAA TPOC and the training partner to coordinate the request. Once CSID and the training partner agree on course availability and dates, the training partner is put directly in touch with the SAA TPOC or the requesting jurisdiction/agency (at the SAA TPOC's discretion) to coordinate the exact location, dates, and times of the training. Additional information and/or paperwork may be required and will be coordinated by the training partner along with other logistical information. This process is followed for all instructor-led training, whether it is in residence or mobile.

To maintain consistency and equity in the scheduling of courses, it is important that individuals,
jurisdictions, and agencies do not contact the training providers to schedule training directly. They must
request approval through their SAA TPOC to schedule a course. Some SAA TPOCs allow jurisdictions to
contact training providers directly to schedule training, but it is critical that permission be obtained first for this type of direct scheduling.

The requester must use the West Virginia Homeland Security SAA Training Database (www.onlinelearning.wv.gov/dmapscm6) as the primary means of registration for any NTED, Federal/State Approved or Locally Funded/Grant Funded course requested.
