Course Description:
Hosted by Kawerak Inc. and FEMA Region X.
This course combines four separate courses taught in an interactive classroom environment. ICS 100, Introduction to the Incident Command System, introduces the Incident Command System (ICS) and provides the foundation for higher level ICS training. This course describes the history, features and principles, and organizational structure of the Incident Command System. It also explains the relationship between ICS and the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

At the completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain the principles and basic structure of the Incident Command System (ICS).
  • Describe the NIMS management characteristics that are the foundation of the ICS.
  • Describe the ICS functional areas and the roles of the Incident Commander and Command Staff.
  • Describe the General Staff roles within ICS.
  • Identify how NIMS management characteristics apply to ICS for a variety of roles and discipline areas.

Note: Students will be required to successfully complete four online exams in class in order to receive credit for each of the courses covered.

Target Audience:
Federal, state, tribal, and local emergency management and response personnel who require ICS and NIMS training within their organization. This typically includes those responsible or involved in emergency planning, response, and/or recovery efforts.
