Christmas is behind us, and New Year’s Day is right around the corner, but in the meantime, you probably have a few hours to kill. How about doing some training?
New training requirements are coming. The 2019 training calendar is already posted, and along with the usual requirement of IS-700, IS-800, IS-100, and IS-200, there are new training classes that we all have to take to stay current with the county. For the on-line classes, the new ones include:
- IS–706 NIMS Intrastate Mutual Aid – An Introduction
- IS–546.A Continuity of Operations Awareness Course
Both of these courses are new for us and we are required to take them as soon as possible. There are also some new classroom courses that will be sprinkled into the training as we go, but some of you may already have them. They include:
- EOC–101 Operation in the PWC EOC.
- G–191 Incident Command System/Emergency Operations Center Interface.
- G–775 EOC Management and Operations.
There are also some new optional course that you can take if you have some spare time.
Remember, if you already have one of these courses, you do not currently have to retake them. So if you have IS-700a, (the current version is 700b), you are covered.
As always, please send the Emergency Coordinator a copy of your certificate for those classes that you passed.
See you at the January Training! (Saturday, January 19, 2019) at the EOC.
