In addition, in order to be prepared for this intermediate-level (ICS-300 equivalent) course, and as required in order to fulfill the U.S. DHS NIMS/ICS training requirements, all attendees should have completed all required NIMS/ICS training IS-200: Basic ICS, or equivalent training prior to enrolling in this training.
This 20 hour blended learning course incorporates Web-Based Training (WBT) and Instructor-Led Training (ILT) to develop emergency response supervisors and mid-toupper- level managers. The course provides participants opportunities to hone skills necessary to effectively plan for and manage a large-scale incident by applying and implementing an all-hazards, multi-disciplinary, command and management team approach as described in the National Incident Management System’s (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS) and multi-agency coordination systems. The course provides specific emphasis on incident action planning and resource management processes. The course is divided into two parts. This course design document outlines the second part of the course which is an ILT course that uses an interactive, scenario-based training design.
This portion of the course can be delivered in a face-to-face and/or using a distributed, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) format. This section of the course provides participants a conceptual framework through facilitated discussions with subject matter experts in which each of the fundamental ICS planning and resource management concepts are amplified. The participants are allowed to immediately apply their newly gained knowledge and concepts through scenario-based activities. Through this process, participants are able to experience the incident action planning and resource management processes in a controlled setting. The structure of this component provides participants opportunities to reinforce and apply the principles and concepts of the ICS in context. This section includes a practical application scenario-based role-play exercise that is customized to the community in which the course is delivered.
