Training Announcement: ICS Position Specific Training (Type 3)

 

March 1, 2010

 

March 29 – April 2, 2010

Training Description

NIMS ICS Position Specific training is designed to provide all-hazards competencies and behaviors for the eight Command and General Staff positions and select unit leader positions. The competencies in the training are focused around the ability of the student to assume the position responsibilities, lead assigned personnel, communicate effectively, and to ensure the completion of assigned tasks to meet identified objectives for the position.

NIMS ICS Position Specific training should be completed by personnel who desire to eventually be certified as a member of a Type III Incident Management Team (IMT) or who desire to seek credentials/certification in an ICS Command and General Staff or Unit Leader position. Personnel qualification relies on a combination of training, operational experience (during exercises or incidents), job shadowing or field mentoring, and administrative requirements (such as agency association and criminal background checks). Credentialed personnel in an ICS Command and General Staff position (as well as unit leader positions) must supplement training for a candidate to meet minimum expectations to qualify for service in an all-hazards NIMS position during a complex multi-jurisdictional incident nationwide (incidents that require responders to hold credentials under the National Emergency Responder Credentialing System).

Who should attend?

Students who wish to complete NIMS ICS All-Hazards Command and General Staff position specific training (as well as unit leader positions) should have completed ICS-100, 200, 300, and 400 training. Certain prerequisite criteria may apply. For information on attending these courses and the approval process please contact Mike Grant, State Training Officer at MEMA.
