HSPD-5 directed the development of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and National Response Plan (NRP), superseded by the National Response Framework (NRF) in 2008.  To support nation-wide implementation of NIMS and the NRF, the DHS/FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI) has developed a number of web-based Independent Study (IS) courses that provide overviews of relevant NIMS and NRF topics.

While these courses are available as web-based training, upon request EMSI can deliver them in classroom and webinar formats.
