NIMS compliant ICS training guidelines
The National Incident Management System (NIMS) Integration Center (NIC) has developed guidelines for Incident Command System (ICS) training providers to help ensure that their training meets NIMS requirements and is consistent with the concepts, principles, and characteristics of the NIMS ICS training offered by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) training entities and the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG).
The NIMS National Standard Curriculum: Training Development Guidance (2005, p. 26) outlines NIMS ICS concepts and principles, management characteristics, organizations and operations, organizational element titles, and recommendations for a model curriculum. It also provides an evaluation checklist that may be used to make sure ICS training meets the “as taught by DHS” standard. The guidance is available at: www.fema.gov/pdf/nims/nims_training_development.pdf.
