Course Description

Basic Incident Command System for Initial Response

ICS-200 webinar session reviews the Incident Command System (ICS), provides the context for ICS within initial response, and supports higher level ICS training. This course provides training on, and resources for, personnel who are likely to assume a supervisory position within ICS.

At the completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the course objectives and summarize basic information about the Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS):
  • Describe how the NIMS Management Characteristics relate to Incident Command and Unified Command.
  • Describe the delegation of authority process, implementing authorities, management by objectives, and preparedness plans and objectives.
  • Identify ICS organizational components, the Command Staff, the General Staff, and ICS tools.
  • Describe different types of briefings and meetings.
  • Explain flexibility within the standard ICS organizational structure.
  • Explain transfer of command briefings and procedures.
  • Use ICS to manage an incident or event.

Primary Audience

The intended audience(s) are response personnel at the supervisory level who are involved with emergency planning, response, or recovery efforts.

This webinar can be used as a refresher of ICS-200 or to assist you in taking the IS-200.c exam offered through the FEMA Training website. Completing the webinar alone does not meet the requirements for completing ICS-200. You will still need to take the exam offered through FEMA to receive a certificate of completion for ICS-200. Once you have passed the test offered at www.training.fema.gov, you will receive an email with a certificate of completion attached. 


In order to receive official FEMA certification in ICS-200 students must take the FEMA Final Exam via link provided. Please note that the IS Program now requires a FEMA SID to be used instead of your SSN. If you do not have a SID, register for one here.
