There are two reasons you may have been placed on a course waitlist:

  • Priority enrollment for IOEM-sponsored courses is given to personnel working for state and/or local agencies. Federal or out-of-state personnel are automatically placed on the course waitlist and are added to the roster on a first-come, first-served basis, space allowing.
  • Individuals who have not completed all required course prerequisites are waitlisted upon enrollment. If you believe you have been waitlisted in error, contact siteadmin@imd.idaho.gov. Please be prepared to provide digital copies of certificates for prerequisite courses. If you have not completed the prerequisites, do so at your earliest convenience and send digital copies of the certificates to siteadmin@imd.idaho.gov. Your transcript will be updated and you will be removed from the waitlist and enrolled in the course if space allows.
