ICS-400 Course Offered Virtually May 23-24

The FEMA ICS-400 course, Advanced Incident Command System for Command and General Staff, Complex Incidents, and Multiagency Coordination Systems, will be offered virtually for Arizona Wing members on May 23-24. The National Emergency Services Academy Mobile Training Team will facilitate the course using Zoom online meeting technology from 0800-1700 each day.

Prerequisites for students include completion of the CAP GES; IS 100, 200, 700, 800; and ICS 300 courses. Students must also complete the course pre-test in CAP eServices AXIS no later than May 22.

Register by May 16 via AIRS on ewing.azwg.org to take the course. The course will be held May 23-24 and students will have from May 25-June 7 to complete the course post-test in eServices.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How the National Incident Management System Command and Management component supports the management of expanding incidents.
  • The Incident/Event Management process for supervisors and expanding incidents as prescribed by the ICS.
  • How to implement the Incident Management process on a simulated Type 3 incident.
  • How to develop an Incident Action Plan for a simulated incident.

NESA-MTT recently hosted the nation’s first virtual/synchronous delivery of ICS 300. Twelve students from two Southwest Region states (Texas and Arizona) participated along with four instructors from Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, and Arizona, and two observers from Maryland and Florida, all joining by Zoom for the class.

According to Lt. Col. Bob Ditch, NESA-MTT coordinator, “We also managed two separate homeroom breakout areas successfully – most especially all at no-cost to the attendees, the faculty members, or CAP.”
