Event Details

ICS-400: Advanced ICS



This course provides training and resources for personnel who require advanced application of the ICS. This course expands upon information covered in ICS-100 through ICS-300 courses. These earlier courses are prerequisites for ICS-400.



The target audience for this course is senior personnel who are expected to perform in a management capacity in an area command or multiagency coordination entity.



ICS-100, ICS-200, ICS-300, IS-700 and IS-800

Note: FEMA recommends experience using concepts and principles from ICS 100, 200, and 300 and use their skills in an operational environment before taking ICS-400. This will provide necessary context and understanding of the skills they will develop when they take ICS-400. Students must have taken the Emergency Management Institute, U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Fire Academy, or National Wildfire Coordinating Group ICS courses. Other ICS courses will be reviewed for consistency with the ICS objectives prescribed by the NIC.
