NIMS/ICS Courses

The National Incident Management System (NIMS) provides a systematic, proactive approach to guide departments and agencies at all levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector to work seamlessly to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of incidents, regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity, in order to reduce the loss of life and property and harm to the environment.

NIMS works hand in hand with the National Response Framework (NRF).  NIMS provides the template for the management of incidents, while the NRF provides the structure and mechanisms for national-level policy for incident management.

Civil Air Patrol has committed to being NIMS compliant like all other response agencies across the United States.  In order to be NIMS compliant CAP members participating in emergency services will need to complete certain training in accordance with guidance from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and CAP will need to meet other NIMS guidelines established by DHS as they are announced.

Northeast Region offers courses in cooperation with  the NATIONAL EMERGENCY SERVICES ACADEMY- MOBILE TRAINING TEAM (NESA-MTT) and the approval of the National Headquarters Director of Operations.
