Course Description

MGT-314 - Enhanced Incident Management/Unified Command (EIMUC)

The Enhanced IM/UC course focuses on incident management skills, staff responsibilities, and the related situational awareness and decision-making skills using a computer-driven training simulation to offer a challenging decision-making environment in a WMD scenario. The course focuses on the Incident Command Post (ICP) and the key decision-making requirements within that response node. Participants learn from the cause and effects of incident decisions while working in an ICP using a simulated, notional jurisdiction. The course begins with a short overview of WMD emergency response considerations and methodologies of the Incident Command System (ICS) in a unified command structure followed by several rigorous computer-driven emergency response chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) scenarios. The course is delivered (resident) in the world-class TEEX Emergency Operations Training Center (EOTC) in College Station, Texas. The WMD instructional team consists of trainers experienced in emergency management and incident response. The course uses a multidiscipline, jurisdictional approach to accomplish the course objectives. Each staff position is integrated into a unified command structure responding to an incident. During the simulation, participants can work in their normal assigned ICS position for the entire course to refine their performance skills in that position or they may choose a more well-rounded experience and train in several staff positions. The course adapts existing incident management systems and procedures to the unique requirements of responding to WMD/terrorism incidents.
