ICS 300 and ICS 400 are two FEMA courses that are required for many Emergency Services positions, from Mission Safety Officer to Public Information Officer, among others. ICS 300 is the Intermediate ICS (Incident Command System) for Expanding Incidents. ICS 400 is the Advanced ICS course.
These classes are given “in residence only.” They will be offered in Arizona Wing by the National Emergency Services Academy Mobile Training Team, which is authorized to conduct these courses for CAP members. Both courses will be taught at Falcon Composite Squadron in Mesa. ICS 300 will be offered on September 20-22, 2019, and ICS 400 is scheduled for October 19-20, 2019. There are still some seats available for both courses.
There are several prerequisite courses that you must complete before registering for the ICS 300 class, including: ICS 100, 200, 700, 800 and IS 201. These may be completed online. In addition, you must complete ICS 300 before taking ICS 400.
“This is a great opportunity to take these courses locally,” said Wing Safety Officer Lt. Col. Corey Stohlquist.
Registration and detailed information for the ICS 300 and ICS 400 classes are available in the Arizona Wing OPSS system. Potential students are encouraged to register soon as seating is limited. There is no charge for these classes.
