ICS Canada is currently developing a series of position specific training courses targeted at eight of the functional positions within an ICS organization. These positions were identified as the priority positions for training by the ICS Canada steering committee and include most of the Command and General Staff positions along with the common supervisory positions within the Operations Section. Each course addresses the roles and responsibilities appropriate to each of the key positions operating on a local or provincial-level Incident Management Team (Type 3). Training is focused around the ability of the student to assume specific position responsibilities, lead assigned personnel, communicate effectively, and to ensure the completion of assigned tasks in order to meet identified objectives for each of the positions.The expected outcomes of the training is to set the ground work for the establishment of
Incident Management Teams that will be portable and interoperable across Canadian jurisdictions.
