IPEM Renewal Application Form

Below is the list of requirements necessary to complete your IPEM renewal application:

  • Training Requirements*

      • 72 additional hours of IEMA/FEMA/IESMA sponsored training and/or conferences. These could include:
        • 12 hours credit for successfully completing up to 6 non-IPEM specific FEMA Independent Study courses at 2 hours each.
        • Additional non-IPEM specific courses listed on the IEMA training transcript.
        • Petitioning up to 36 hours of training received outside of IEMA/FEMA/IESMA training/conferences. These petitions must include transcripts or completion certificates along with a description and list of objectives for each course.
        • Petitioning credit for using successfully completed college level hours.

      *All training certificates not included on your IEMA Training Transcript, must be submitted prior to your IPEM application submission. All training certificates should be sent to:

      **Either Command and General Staff or All Hazard Incident Management Training can be used in place of ICS 400.

  • Exercise Requirements

    The acceptable exercise-related and actual/pre-planned event positions are listed below. After clicking on your position in the exercise or actual/pre-planned event, a drop down box will provide you with the specific narrative and documentation that you will need to provide. As you complete this part of the IPEM application, remember that the narrative and documentation are two separate elements.

    Narrative:

      The narrative is specific to each of the six positions. It should include a detailed description of your activities based on your position. Although you will be asked for specific information, you need to pay special attention to two items. These include providing enough information to allow the IPEM Application Review Committee to have a thorough understanding of your involvement and identifying the lessons learned that you will take forward. When completed, this narrative should provide a baseline that not only documents where you stand today, but also help identify how you can improve your capability to be a more productive member when developing, controlling and evaluating future exercises and managing future actual/pre-planned events. There is no minimum length. The narrative should be a double-spaced, single-sided Word document that is to be included with your IPEM application.

    Documentation:

      The listed documents are specific to each of the six positions. Attach as many of the documents as possible. Identify in your narrative if any of the documents are not available, why they are not available and if you are attaching any other documentation in their place.

    Select your position:
