ICS 100

Incident Command System 100 (ICS 100) is an introduction to the Incident Command System (ICS) and is intended for personnel assigned to an incident or event who have a minimum requirement (first responders, stakeholders, cooperating or assisting agencies) for understanding ICS; students will be required to complete a final exam.

The ICS 100 course is offered by ICS service providers or as an online self-study.  It reviews the ICS organization, basic terminology, and common responsibilities. It will provide basic information about the Incident Command System to enable you to work in a support role at an incident or event, or to support an incident from an off-site location.  This is an entry level course and along with the Basic Emergency Management (BEM) is considered a prerequisite for more advanced emergency management training offered centrally by NB EMO, such as the Emergency Operations Centre course (EOC).  

For access to the ICS 100, please see instructions below:

  • Send an email to NB EMO at emo@gnb.ca requesting access to the online course, providing details how you meet the requirements to be a first responder, stakeholder, cooperating or assisting agency.  Applicants must reside in New Brunswick.
  • Once the ICS Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) is satisfied that the requirements are met, an email with a link and access code will be provided.

You will have the ability to print your certificate at the end of the course.
