Incident Command Advanced

(NIMS 400)


This 40-hour training course teaches advanced IMS/ICS through utilization of a highly interactive 3D virtual reality theater, the Advanced Disaster Management System (ADMS). Participants who will already have been trained at the intermediate level of incident management will be exposed to dealing with highly complicated incidents over a broader geographic area requiring potential command and coordination of multiple agencies. Through utilization of the ADMS command training suite, delegates will be placed in command staff and general staff roles in accordance with the ICS structure during virtual incidents. Interactive scenarios will involve fires, hazardous materials, natural disasters, possible terrorist acts and other potential complications to an incident within a wide range of customizable urban, industrial, marine, rail, road, or airport environments generated through virtual reality. Successful completion of this course will result in FSA certification.
