  • This is an instructor-led workshop reviewing the principles presented in the ICS 100-Introduction to the Incident Command System and the ICS 700- An Introduction to the National Incident Command System, both of which can be taken online. This instructor-led workshop is beneficial for students who want to learn the principles covered in these courses or review this course material. After the lecture, this workshop features an instructor-led discussion on where each student would fit in with an incident.

    ICS 100 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). ICS 700 provides an overview of NIMS. NIMS defines the comprehensive approach guiding the whole community - all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations (NGO), and the private sector - to work together seamlessly to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from the effects of incidents. The course provides learners with a basic understanding of NIMS concepts, principles, and components.
