ERI’s ICS Courses

(These offering will be expanded in March.)


Our ICS Approach

Our ICS courses, while offered in a universal NIMS format by FEMA approved instructors, most of our client groups come from one of a few areas.  We can thus tailor your experience, such that interactive learning, and meaningful skill retention, in an enjoyable atmosphere are achieved.  The client focus areas are:

ICS 300 - Intermediate Incident Command

The Intermediate Incident Command (ICS 300) is a 21-24 hour three-day course providing you tools to better manage an emergent incident or planned event.  This course is both fully NIMS compliant while, upon request, tailored to your organizations, agency, business, or unit’s needs.  


In all our courses we encourage no-fault interactive discussion and table-top exercises, such that you truly learn by doing.  Upon completion, you will have a practical and working knowledge of ICS appropriate for your needs and when you work with others beyond your organization.


The objectives of the course are:

The specific units covered in the course are:


ICS 400 - Advanced Incident Command

The Advanced Incident Command (ICS 400) is a 16-hour two-day course providing you tools to better understand a large incident or event of a regional- or national-level complexity.  This course is both fully NIMS compliant while, upon request, tailored to your organizations, agency, business, or unit’s needs.


In all our courses we encourage no-fault interactive discussion and table-top exercises, such that you truly learn by doing.  Upon completion, you will have a practical and working knowledge of additional ICS and practical insights as to when, where, and why these tools are useful.

Planning Process Workshop  - “How to Plan”

This three-day workshop will better prepare one too effectively and efficiency plan, whether working in a state or county Emergency Operations Center or directly in the field.   


The workshop focuses on the core informational needs and challenges associated with the planning process for both emergency incidents and planned events.  


This interactive and exercise based workshop leverages off of the “Planning P” and is NIMS compliant, but is not an ICS course in the strict sense.


This workshop is intended for personnel assigned to the EOC Planning Section at the state, county, or city or those assigned to a field-level ICS Planning Section.
