ODPS Ohio Emergency Management Agency ICS 300/400 Training

ICS-300 Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents

This 21-hour classroom ICS-300 course builds on the prerequisite IS-100 and IS-200 courses and this ICS-300 course focuses on the Incident Command System (ICS) for supervisors in expanding incidents. ICS-300 outlines how the NIMS Command and Coordination component supports the management of expanding incidents as well as describes the incident management processes as prescribed by ICS. This course has a threaded activity that will give students the opportunity to practice implementing the incident management process and creating an Incident Action Plan (IAP) for a simulated expanding incident.

Required Prerequisites

This 15-hour classroom ICS-400 course is for an audience of experienced responders and other senior emergency management personnel who may perform in a management capacity for major or complex incidents (Type 1 or Type 2 incidents).  Large and complex incidents that require the application of area command do not happen often and although this is an advanced ICS course, the course is not to develop mastery of area command; but the purpose of this course is to expose students to the concepts of utilizing area command in major and complex incidents.
