Course Objectives 
• Describe how the NIMS Command and Management component supports the management of expanding incidents.

• Implement the incident management process on a simulated expanding incident.
• Develop an Incident Action Plan for a simulated incident.

ICS Training and NIMS The National Incident Management System (NIMS) National Standard Curriculum: Training Development Guidance outlines the System's ICS concepts and principles, management characteristics, organizations and operations, organizational element titles, and recommendations for a model curriculum. It also provides an evaluation checklist for content that may be used to make sure that the training meets the "as taught by DHS" standard. The guidance document is available for download from the NIMS homepage at

www.fema.gov/emergency/nims

The model NIMS ICS curriculum organizes four levels of training: ICS-100, Introduction to ICS; ICS-200, Basic ICS; ICS-300, Intermediate ICS; and ICS-400, Advanced ICS. ICS training provided by EMI, NFA, NWCG, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) follow this model.

According to the NIC, emergency management and response personnel already ICS trained do not need retraining if their previous training is consistent with the DHS standard. This would include ICS courses managed, administered, or delivered by EMI, NFA, NWCG, USDA, EPA, or USCG. Questions concerning NIMS and related training issues may be directed to:
