The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public to take this opportunity to comment on a reinstatement, with change, of a previously approved information collection for which approval has expired. The reinstatement includes minor changes to survey questions in order for the agency to better assess changes to students' behaviors on the job. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning the use of the three separate Kirkpatrick Training Program Evaluation Level 3 instruments by three geographically separated National Training and Education (NTED) Training Organizations: The Training Partners Program Branch (TPP) located at FEMA Headquarters, Washington, DC, the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) located in Anniston, AL, and the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) located in Emmitsburg, MD.
