Release of NIMS Training Program

From: Emergency Management and Response-Information Sharing and Analysis Center

The Emergency Management and Response—Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EMR-ISAC) learned that the National Integration Center completed development of a National Incident Management System (NIMS) Training Program to supersede the Five-Year NIMS Training Plan released in February 2008.

This new training program establishes a common national foundation for NIMS training and qualifying emergency management and incident response personnel. More specifically, the NIMS Training Program guides NIMS training activities; supports stakeholder training and planning; and serves as a single-source, regularly updated compilation of training within the NIMS national core curriculum.

Additionally, the training program outlines responsibilities and activities that are consistent with the National Training Program and integrates with FEMA training offered through the Emergency Management Institute and the U.S. Fire Administration.
