ICS-400: Advanced ICS for Complex Incidents (NFA)
Instructional Hours: 15.00
Course Objective: By the end of this course, students will be able to demonstrate the duties, responsibilities, and capabilities required to perform in a management capacity for major and complex incidents/events using Area Command.
Course Description: This course is designed for those emergency response personnel who would function as part of an Area Command, Emergency Operations Center, or Multiagency Coordination System during a large, complex incident or event or those personnel who are or would likely be part of a local or regional Incident Management Team during a major incident, whether single agency, multiagency or Unified Command. Although this is an advanced ICS course, it is not intended to develop mastery of area command.

The course expands upon information covered in the ICS 100, ICS 200, and ICS 300 prerequisite courses.

Must successfully complete prerequisite courses, Incident Command System ICS-100, ICS-200 and ICS-300 or equivalent prior to being accepted for this course.
