ICS 300 Intermediate ICS (IEMA)
This course provides training on and resources for personnel who require advanced application of the Incident Command System(ICS). The target audience includes all individuals who may assume a supervisory role in expanding incidents. This course expands upon information covered in ICS 100 and 200 courses. (Both are pre-requisites for ICS 300.) The course also allows those identified personnel, including public health personnel, to comply with ICS level 300 training. This is a requirement for those jurisdictions that choose to comply with the National Incident Management System(NIMS) to ensure they continue receiving their federal preparedness funding grants. We are recommending that jurisdictions identify middle management who are going to be acting in the role of incident commander or section chief during an event to take the IS 300 course.
Course Length: 16 hours
Course Manager: IEMA
