In addition to the courses listed below offered by IMTC, our Incident Management or EOC experts can tailor an existing course, add local or company emphasis, or if needed, develop an entirely new course or training session to facilitate enhancement of your capabilities.

IMTC has developed or presented over one-thousand incident command, incident management, team building, Emergency Operations Center (EOC), Department Operations Center (DOC), and State Operations Center training courses and exercises, including the entire series of position specific courses for the EPA, USFA, and EMI.


The training courses presented by IMTC are a critical building block in the development of the Core Competencies and the Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities (KSAs) required to properly execute the duties and responsibilities of each recognized ICS position.
To assist in finding the appropriate course, IMTC divides its ICS courses into General Requirements and Position-Specific Requirements. Each ICS course follows all recognized USA and Canadian guidance and standards and is eligible for DHS grant fund reimbursement in the USA.
