This ICS 100 course is an introduction to the Incident Command System for workers who may be involved in incident response or event planning. Additional training may be warranted depending on your level of involvement in incident response.
Positions of authority within the Incident Command System are often delegated to workers based upon experience and training. The level of training required for positions within ICS vary depending on the level of the responder (e.g., defensive response aimed at controlling a release; offensive response aimed at stopping the release) and position within ICS. Not all positions within ICS require hazardous materials response training.
Additional ICS and NIMS training for emergency responders may include, but is not limited to:
Workers must receive additional training, when required by Federal, State, or local regulations, on the specific hazards of their job. Training Providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company’s training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, a student should receive site-specific training supplied by their employer. This training should target the company’s unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company-specific training should be well documented.
