1 National Incident Management System 5-Year Training Plan Al Fluman, Acting Director Incident Management Systems Division (IMSD), National Integration Center

2 NIMS Five-Year Training Plan  Goal of NIMS Training  To establish a common national foundation to train the state/tribal/local (private sector and non-governmental) first responders and federal disaster workforce, so that responders, incident managers, and resource coordinators can work together effectively and efficiency during a disaster or emergency response.

3 NIMS Five-Year Training Plan  Objectives  To serve as a single-source, regularly updated compilation all aspects of NIMS training;  To provide explicit guidance for all NIMS-related training courses, applicable to all levels of government, the private sector, and NGOs;  Provide sufficient guidance to allow other stakeholders to create long- term plans, objectives, and action items for their own training programs; and  To establish specific strategic objectives for the next five years, to guide the actions of the National Integration Center as it provides leadership of national NIMS training.

4 Topical Areas of the Plan  Who needs to know what? Who needs what training?  Core competencies  Position qualifications  NIMS compliance requirements  Course requirements NIMS National Standard Curriculum Training Development Guidance with be incorporated into Five Year Plan

5 Topical Areas of the Plan (continued) Course Development and Course Quality  Course objectives tied to competencies Current summary of NIMS training  Impetus behind courses  NIMS compliance requirements (drives personnel to take courses)  Competency expectations (sets the content of the courses)  Details about currently available courses  Availability of courses and instructors Desired state of NIMS training in October 2012  NIMS (ICS) positions defined  Training necessary to meet the knowledge, skills, and abilities for each NIMS position  Guidance to jurisdictions on how to determine who needs to take the training Annual Objectives and Action Items to achieve the desired state of NIMS training in October 2012

6 NIMS Five-Year Training Plan: Refining and Extending Training Guidance  Expand NIMS training guidance to cover position-specific core competencies (current and future)  Link training objectives and core competencies to positions in the National Credentialing System  Recommend NIMS Compliance Requirements for Training, FY2008-12  Develop “Throughput” plans, to ensure adequate foundation of curricular guidance and qualified instructors  Instructor qualifications  Train-the-Trainer  Training “minimums” – baseline hours, specified evaluation?  Equivalent training identified (as appropriate)

7 NIMS Five-Year Training Plan: Research Methodology  Background Research  NIMS Upgrade & National Standard Curriculum Guidance  Summarize positions (current and anticipated) in National Credentialing System  Best/Existing Practices  Stakeholder Inputs  Working group of fed, state, and local emergency management and emergency response trainers and training administrators  Guidance for NIMS Compliance Requirements (FY08-12)  Reality check for training-program needs  Additional Analytic inputs?  Data to guide who/how many must be trained

8 Possible Additional Analytic Inputs  IMT deployment analysis  Identify and analyze data that describes frequency of deploying IMT’s of various sizes  Analysis could yield geographic data on who/how many must be trained  Translate deployment data into capability guidance based on operational need (distribution/likelihood of mission demands for emergency response requiring IMT capability of various scales) Bottom Line: Better define IMTs in relationship to NIMS and formalize training

9 NIMS National Standard Curriculum Training Development Guidance  Current Sections:  Summary of NIMS Compliance Requirements  Evaluation Checklists for Training Content  Incident Command System (ICS)  ICS Elements of NIMS summarized  Topical areas for equivalent training (ICS-100, 200, 300, 400, 402)  MACS – Concepts & Principles  Public Information System – Concepts & Principles  Preparedness – Concepts & Principles  Resource Management – Concepts & Principles  Communications and Information Management – Concepts & Principles  Supporting Technologies – Concepts & Principles Task Element: Adapt National Standard Curriculum Training Development Guidance to be consistent with upgraded NIMS Document.

10 NIMS National Credentialing System  Description of the National Credentialing System  NIC definition of emergency-response positions  Defined for both Incident Management and Field Personnel – this plan focuses on Incident Management personnel standards  Core competencies for each ICS position are defined  62 positions currently listed  Core competencies drive training objectives  How the NCS meshes with this Training Plan  Link training objectives to existing courses  Identify gaps where curriculum development is needed

11 On-Going Stakeholder Input  Stakeholder Working Group held on 1-2 May 2007  Topics covered:  Recommendations for specific goals and action items for the Five-Year Training Plan  NIMS Compliance Requirements (training portion) for FY08-12  Same for all state/local jurisdictions?  Baseline requirements vs. recommendations?  Working Group to review NIMS Five-Year Training Plan throughout its development (via electronic distribution)

12 Workflow Plan – Draft Document  Summarize results of Working Group Meeting  Reminder: Solicit continued participation  Drafting schedule – pieces for WG to review  Introduction/Overview (draft by 5/15)  Define Desired State of NIMS Training Oct 2013 (5/22)  Summary of Current NIMS Training (5/22)  Annual Objectives & Action Items (5/29)  Course Appendices (6/5)  On-Going Plan Review and Update (6/5)  Full document (6/26)

13 Workflow Plan – Reviews  Internal Review – complete 26 June 2007  Full document to WG for review (2 weeks, plus cushion for July 4 th ) – complete 13 July 2007  Final collation of comments  Final Draft Deliverable – 20 July 2007  National Review of Document – 20 August 2007  Adaptation of deliverable for alternative delivery means (e.g., creating a web-based, linked document)  Final Release of Document – 1 October 2007

14 Five-Year Training Plan - Outcomes  All NIMS Training Information contained in one document (indexed and easy to use)  Stakeholder input throughout process to include “adjustments” in out years  “Adjustments” to plan can be implemented based on NIMSCAST data collected from States  Out-year training requirements identified “early-on” to facilitate planning and budget needs at all levels of government

15 National Integration Center Incident Management Systems Division  NIMS Website Information   Contact the NIC  Email:  Phone: 202-646-3534
