 O-305 – All Hazards Incident Management Team (AHIMT) Course: NIMS/ICS All-Hazards Position-Specific Training 12/10/2012 8:30 AM

Date:              Monday, December 10, 2012 to

Friday, December 14, 2012

Time:             8:30am – 5:00pm every day

Location:      Broward County EOC

Course Description:

The 5-day course serves as a basic introduction to the activities and processes of a USFA Type 3 IMT.  This course meets the ends of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the National Response Framework (NRF).  The USFA Type 3 IMT course focuses on the importance of developing and operating as a functional USFA Type 3 IMT.  This course will assist individual responders to perform as viable team members by:

·         Demonstrating the goals of NIMS and the NRF

·         Emphasizing the nature and purpose of a USFA Type 3 IMT so that others in the community and emergency services are more willing and able to assist within various components of their local USFA Type 3 IMT

·         Demonstrating the critical role that leadership and teamwork skills play in the success of an USFA Type 3 IMT

·         Providing a basic framework for building and maintaining critical interpersonal communications and for working together as a team member of an USFA Type 3 IMT

·         Offering practical experience of on-scene operations through extensive exercises and simulations, as well as through post-course refresher training by providing students with the opportunity to perform as members of a USFA Type 3 IMT during a mock incident management situation

The overall goal and objective of this course is to develop state and regional 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 the second operational period. 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 Type 2 or Type 1 IMT for incidents of national significance.


 The activity within the course is:

  • Designed as a series of simulation exercises and instruction for incident management team members.  The course includes multiple exercise activities, simulations, discussions, and a final exam enable students to process and apply their new knowledge
  • This course is activity intensive and is designed to better prepare response personnel to manage large, complex incidents effectively by using the functional components of the Incident Command System
  • The simulations are designed to test the students in their functional knowledge as well as their ability to function as a team
  • Instruction is provided to enhance their abilities to interact, communicate, make decisions, improve risk management and reduce errors
  • The focus of the course is to enhance the skills necessary to operate as a team in various Command and General Staff positions and to promote a better understanding of team operations through application during various simulations


NIMS ICS All-Hazards Position-Specific training should be completed by personnel who are regularly assigned to functional, support, or unit leader positions on United States Fire Administration (USFA) or other Type III AHIMTs, or by those persons who desire to seek credentials/certification in those positions.
