EMI School Program

EMI offers school officials courses supporting the implementation of NIMS as well as general courses aimed at building school emergency management capacity.

National Incident Management System Courses

The U.S. Departments of Homeland Security and Education recommend all key personnel involved in school emergency management and incident response take the NIMS, ICS, and NRF training courses and support the implementation of NIMS. Currently, key personnel are required to complete four courses in order for an individual or organization to be considered NIMS compliant through FY 2007.

To date, the following courses are required:

  • IS-100.c: Introduction to the Incident Command System, ICS 100
  • IS-200.b: ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents
  • IS-700.b: An Introduction to the National Incident Management System
  • IS-800.c: National Response Framework, an Introduction

The following additional courses are recommended for leadership personnel:

  • ICS 300 Intermediate Incident Command System
  • ICS 400 Advanced Incident Command System
