NIMS Core Curriculum Courses are comprised of ICS, NIMS, and All-Hazards Position Specific (AHPS) coursesImplementing the NIMS Training Program is a critical component of a National Training Program, mandated by the Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006. A well developed NIMS training program that both guides and promotes NIMS training is vital to a successful nationwide implementation of NIMS. However, NIMS training is just one component of a comprehensive emergency management program, which requires a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, equipping, exercising, evaluating, and taking corrective action.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Integration Center (NIC) maintains the NIMS Training Program. FEMA recognizes that the NIMS national training program must be more than a plan to train emergency management personnel on the ICS. As a result, the NIC is releasing this NIMS Training Program document to define a national NIMS training curriculum and personnel qualifications and to assemble and update the training guidance for available NIMS courses (organized as a core curriculum).
The NIMS Training Program supersedes the Five-Year NIMS Training Plan, originally released in February 2008.
