NIMS Training

Hospitals may use a vendor-created or in-person training course. The NIMS Information Center (NIC) recognizes that many operational aspects of NIMS, including ICS training, are available through state, local and tribal training agencies and bia private training vendors.

Hospitals verify their NIMS compliance by meeting the fourteen NIMS elements.

NIMS courses ICS-100, ICS-200 and IS-700 or their equivalents should be completed by:

  • Hospital personnel who are likely to assume a leadership ICS position in the Hospital Command Center or who have a primary responsibility for emergency management.
  • Hospital Emergency Preparedness Committee Members/persons responsible for the Emergency Management Plan.
  • The Emergency Program Manager.
  • In addition, the Emergency Program Manager should complete IS-800 B or equivalent.
