Release of the NIMS Training Program

The National Integration Center (NIC) has developed a National Incident Management System (NIMS) Training Program, superseding the Five-Year NIMS Training Plan, released in February 2008.

The NIMS Training Program establishes a common national foundation for NIMS training and qualifying emergency management and incident response personnel. More specifically, the NIMS Training Program guides NIMS training activities; supports stakeholder training and planning; and serves as a single-source, regularly updated compilation of training within the NIMS national core curriculum.

The NIMS Training Program is available on FEMA’s NIMS Resource Center: www.fema.gov/emergency/nims.
