Looking for Incident Command System (ICS) training in Norway? Look no further than the Proactima-EMSI web-based ICS-100 course now available through Proactima’s e-learning system.
Since 2016, EMSI and Proactima have partnered to deliver incident management solutions to the Scandinavian community. A collaborative effort, EMSI and Proactima worked closely to ensure that the new course continued to meet industry standards for ICS-100 training, while also considering the Scandinavian operating environment. We believe that this new offering will enable Nordic industries to continue their response preparedness efforts.
Proactima is proud to be the first Norwegian company to launch an ICS e-learning course. “We have adapted the course to Scandinavian conditions which makes the course extra attractive”, says Trygve Eeg Tunes, Head of Emergency Preparedness and Crisis Communication at Proactima.
“With Proactima we have found a trusted training partner and look forward to more Proactima-EMSI ICS training offerings”, added EMSI Vice President of Operations Billy Haley.
The course covers the standard ICS-100 training concepts, including:
- Basic principles and structure of ICS.
- Common terminology.
- ICS Command and General Staff functions.
- Unified Command.
- Incident facilities.
Currently offered in English, the Proactima team intends to offer it in Norwegian in the near future. This course is exclusively available through Proactima’s training portal at:
