Currently there are no scheduled classes for this course. However, in some cases a course can be scheduled to meet your organization’s specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class, please contact Emergency Services Training Institute at (866) 878-8900 or firstname.lastname@example.org to get the latest schedule.
ICS 400 is intended 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 don’t happen often. Although this is an advanced ICS course, it is not intended to develop mastery of area command. The purpose of this course is to expose students to the concepts of utilizing area command in major and complex incidents.
This course trains emergency response supervisors and mid-to-upper level managers in the skills necessary to effectively plan for and manage a large-scale incident by applying and implementing an all-hazards, multidisciplinary, command and management team approach. The course places specific emphasis on Incident Action Plan (IAP) development and resource management processes.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
