S420 Training in Virginia

Limited Seats Remain for S420 Training in Virginia

EMSI is excited to host an S420 Command and General Staff course (or ICS-420 Advanced IMT) on May 13-16 in Front Royal, Virginia. Limited seats remain in this seldom offered, advanced ICS course. Specifically, vacancies remain in Command Staff positions (Liaison, Public Information, and Safety).

Designed to prepare students to function effectively in the position of an Incident Commander (ICT2) or Command and General Staff during a Type 2 response, the focus of this course is on the application of previously acquired knowledge, skills, and experience at the Type 3 level, with particular emphasis on team interactions in a Type 2 incident management environment.

Performing the duties and responsibilities of their respective positions as IMT members on a Type 2 incident, students will participate in two types of groups (teams and similar position) during exercises. These exercises include a simulation of the mobilization, management, and demobilization phases of a rapidly accelerating Type 2 incident that has potential to become a Type 1 incident. Students will learn to function as an effective IMT member at the Type 2 level and will be prepared to advance their Command or General Staff qualification to the Type 2 level.

Specific course topics include:

  • ICS position functional relationships
  • Principles and behaviors of a successful Incident Management Team
  • Key components of effective decision making
  • Developing and using IMT Operating Procedures
  • Essential elements of transitions that an incident or event management team is likely to encounter

Interested students should have a Type 3 ICS qualification in a Command or General Staff position, along with sufficient experience at the Type 3 level to prepare for advancement towards a Type 2 qualification.
