The overall goal of USFA's Incident Management Team (IMT) program is to develop state, regional, and tribal IMTs to function under the National Incident Management System (NIMS) during a large and/or complex incident or a major event. This course is designed for those who are assigned to function in a Type 3 IMT during a large/complex incident, typically extending into multiple operational periods. The Type 3 IMT can either support an existing ICS structure, or can assume command of an incident if requested to do so. The Type 3 IMT can ease the transition to a National IMT for large scale, long duration, or complex incidents. This course is 5 full days in length, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and presents a demanding environment during simulations to create an incident management environment similar in nature to a large scale incident.
IFSI prerequisites are based on Illinois and NFPA standards. Equivalencies from other agencies will be reviewed upon request.
