ICS I-200

Course Overview

The Incident Command System is a standardized management system used to organize and manage a scalable response to emergency incidents of any magnitude. ICS I-200, Basic ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents, is designed to enable personnel to operate efficiently during an incident or event within the Incident Command System (ICS). I-200 provides training and resources for personnel who are likely to assume a supervisory position within the ICS.

The course is designed in accordance with the ICS Canada curriculum, which calls for 14 hours of instructional time. This course is presented in a series of chapters and sections to help participants manage their time commitment.

Time to complete: 10 - 14 hours.


ICS I-100 is a required pre-requisite. Learning Design Section staff will verify completion of I-100 prior to enrolling a participant in I-200. If you have not completed I-100 through the AEMA online system you may be asked to submit your certificate confirming completion of I-100 from an ICS Alberta, ICS Canada or FEMA certified source.
