1) responding to the incident and command needs of the incident, effectively fulfilling the position responsibilities of an Incident Commander on an All-Hazards ICS Incident Management Team.
2) Exercises, simulations, discussions, and a final exam enable participants to process and apply their new knowledge.
Target Audience: NIMS ICS Position Specific training should be completed by personnel who are regularly assigned to functional, support, or unit leader positions on USFA or other Type III AHIMT, or by those persons who desire to seek credentials/certification in those positions.
