USFA's National Fire Academy Releases Two Online Self-Study Courses

The U.S. Fire Administration's National Fire Academy announced yesterday that two new self-study courses are available through NFA Online.

These new courses--ICS-300: Intermediate All-Hazard NIMS ICS Review for Expanding Incidents (Q464) and ICS-400: Fundamentals Review for Command and General Staff (Q466)--can be used as pre-course modules or refresher training for the classroom-based ICS 300 and ICS 400 courses delivered nationwide by State fire training agencies.

"These new courses incorporate the most recent changes to the National Response Framework and provide an excellent review tool for firefighters," said Greg Cade, U.S. Fire administrator. "The material presented in these online courses will better prepare the participants to be successful in the required classroom portion of the NFA's Incident Command program offerings."

Completion of Q464 and Q466 alone does not satisfy the requirements for ICS 300 and ICS 400. To access these and other self-study courses, visit NFA Online at www.nfaonline.dhs.gov and select "Browse Catalog" or "New Student."

Twelve courses are available in the following curriculum areas: Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Response to Terrorism, Fire Prevention, Incident Management, Management Science, and Public Education. In the coming weeks, the agency says several Incident Command Simulation Series courses will be released, as well as the revised National Fire Incident Reporting System Self-Study.
