The National Incident Management System (NIMS) provides a systematic, proactive approach to guide agencies and businesses to work seamlessly to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity, in order to reduce the loss of life and property and harm to the environment.  The NIMS provides the template for the management of incidents.  Businesses that take these classes benefit by being able to understand and integrate into a large scale response.  EDPS customizes these courses for each client to ensure that they are able to understand these important concepts by using exercises and examples focused on their particular business.

ICS-100 and ICS-200 Incident Command System On-Site Delivery
ICS 100, Introduction to the Incident Command System, introduces the Incident Command System (ICS) and provides the foundation for higher level ICS training. This course describes the history, features and principles, and organizational structure of the Incident Command System. It also explains the relationship between ICS and the National Incident Management System (NIMS). 

ICS 200 is designed to enable personnel to operate efficiently during an incident or event within the Incident Command System (ICS). ICS-200 provides training on and resources for personnel who are likely to assume a supervisory position within the ICS. 

EDPS offers these courses as an on-site delivery.   The on-site delivery ensures that participants are able to ask questions and better develop an understanding for the Incident Command System.  This is especially helpful for organizations that don't use the ICS on a regular basis such as private sector organizations that want to integrate into a public sector disaster response.
