Basic ICS is intended for front line supervisors and responders who may be first on scene and need to effectively establish command and initiate elements of ICS. It is also intended for staff that may fill roles within larger organizations.
Basic Incident Command System, I-200 introduces how the Incident Command System (ICS) is used to manage Single Resources and the management required for initial action incidents and provides the foundation for higher level ICS training.
This course builds on I-100, going into more detail of the features and principles and organizational structure of the Incident Command System. Course participants will be better prepared to function as an initial Incident Commander.
At the successful completion of this course students will be able to demonstrate a basic knowledge of managing single resources and establishing command using the Incident Command System. The target audience includes persons who may be first on the scene of an incident and be assigned to a supervisory position in a larger incident and ICS organization. The prerequisite for I-200 is successful completion of I-100.
Note: this course is intended as an awareness level course. The purpose of this course is to improve shared understanding and critical knowledge about ICS.
Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to:
- Describe the level of Incident Command System organization that is appropriate for the complexity of the incident or event.
- Use the Incident Command System to manage an incident or event.
