You were given erroneous information. The correct link is the FEMA Emergency Management Institute, where you can take free online courses for ICS and NIMS, among several other course offerings. Upon viewing the entire online course and successfully passing an online test , it will generate a certificate of completion. It may take awhile, but you can then print a copy of it to submit for your records.
