You will learn the skills necessary to effectively manage an incident by applying and implementing a multi-disciplinary management team approach as described in the National Incident Management System (NIMS). At the end of the course, a practical application exercise can be customized to the facility where the course is held.
This course has a limited offering with priority to large venue sporting and special events.
