NIMS / ICS Training


Advanced NIMS Courses (ICS-300 and ICS-400):

The Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security (OKOHS) has partnered with OSU-FST to provide Intermediate and Advanced level NIMS ICS training to Oklahoma's responders. Currently scheduled classes may be viewed by visiting our Training Calendar. 

Certificates for ICS-300 and ICS-400 can be obtained through OSUFST on their website www.osufst.org. If you do not have a login, please contact them at 405-744-5727.

You may host a NIMS course at any time by submitting a Course Request Form via email to April Keeler at least 6 weeks in advance of the start date, to allow adequate time for materials to be produced and instructors to be scheduled. 


Basic NIMS Courses: 

The EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE for FEMA Independent Study Programs (IS) offers self-paced NIMS and Emergency Management courses designed for people who have emergency response and/or management responsibilities. All courses are offered free-of-charge, 24-hours a day, to those who qualify for enrollment.  

Before you begin IS training, you are required to obtain a FEMA Student Identification Number (SID). If you do not have an SID number, please follow this link: https://cdp.dhs.gov/FEMASID.
After successful completion of the online course and test, a certificate will be emailed directly to you from FEMA.
