The Incident Command System is a standardized management system used to organize and manage a scaleable response to emergency incidents of any magnitude. ICS 100 (Module 1) is intended as an introduction and overview of the ICS. It is intended for people who may be assigned to incidents in non- supervisory roles and as a prerequisite for students continuing on through other levels.
The exam is a 25 question written exam with a pass mark of 80%. Individuals who successfully complete the exam will be able to print their certificate.
