 NIMS Training

Audience: First Responders

 The National Incident Management System (NIMS) training program lays out a conceptual framework that maintains a systematic process for the development of training courses and personnel qualifications. This process produces trained and qualified  emergency management personnel. The framework facilitates the systematic development of these courses and qualifications by translating functional capabilities into positions, core competencies, training and personnel qualifications.
The NIMS Training Program sets a sequence of goals, objectives, and action items for the National Integration Center (NIC), which administers NIMS training nationally, and stakeholders, who run their respective NIMS training and education programs.
