ICS 300 and ICS 400
ICS 300 and ICS 400 are requirements for middle and upper-level incident command post positions. In Civil Air Patrol, ICS 300 is required for: AOBD, GBD, CUL, FASC, IC, LO, LSC, MSO, OSC, PIO, and PSC. ICS 400 is also required for qualification for IC, LO, and MSO.

The ICS 300 and 400 courses are in-person courses that are usually taught over a 2-3 day period. They are offered at various times during the year and in various locations. There is no cost to attend the course. The courses are usually offered during the week and, unfortunately, we have no control over the dates and locations.

The courses are very rarely offered on the weekend -- but there are ICS 400 weekend courses coming up in November and even a one day ICS 400 course on a Saturday in October! If you need to take the course on the weekend because of personal or work commitments, I suggest you take advantage of this opportunity even if it isn't close to you.

You can take the course at any time -- you do not need to be in training for a qualification nor have completed any fam and prep courses. ICS 300 does require that you complete ICS 100, 200 and 700 (online courses) course prior to attending. You must complete ICS 300 prior to attending ICS 400.

If you are interested in earning qualifications that require ICS 300 and/or 400, I suggest you consider taking the course when it is available in your area. Below is a list of courses scheduled for OCT/NOV/DEC 2014

ICS 300 Incident Command System: Intermediate.
10/6-8 Ouray
10/6-8 Montrose
12/5-6 Alamosa
ICS 400 Incident Command System: Advanced.
10/4 Haxtun
10/9-10 Ouray
11/5-6 Eagle
11/8-9 Fremont

It is not unusual to get taken off the wait list -- so if a course is full and you want to attend, add yourself to the wait list.

To register for one of these courses, go to www.co.train.org and register for an account. Once you are signed in, click on the calendar tab then click on the course where it is listed on the calendar date you want. Click on the registration tab and then click Register (verify the dates are the ones you want). You will receive an email confirmation of your course registration.
