Instructor Application and Renewal Process:

If you wish to become a NIMS Instructor in Oklahoma, you must complete the NIMS Instructor Application located in the NIMS Instructor Manual and submit it to the Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security.  Please include all required documentation outlined in the application.  Upon approval of your application, you should receive a NIMS Instructor Card with an ID number to be used in future course authorizations.  Instructor certification is good for five years from the time of application or renewal. Please contact April Keeler by email or 405-425-7285 with questions.

Following approval, NIMS Instructors must attend the first available NIMS Instructor Workshop.  Workshops are half-day events that are scheduled throughout the year at various locations across the state.  Attendance of at least one NIMS Instructor Workshop and the submission of an Application is required for renewal. You may register for NIMS Instructor Workshops on the OKOHS Training Calendar.

Instructor applications (both initial and renewal) may be emailed to April Keeler for review.

Course Request Information:

NIMS Instructor Courses are designed for personnel with extensive Incident Management training and experience.  Instructors may schedule and teach in-house NIMS courses at any time; however, they must submit the Course Request Form to OKOHS by email to April Keeler at least 6 weeks in advance of the start date to allow adequate time for materials to be produced and shipped to your location.   

NIMS Instructor Classes are held once a year, or as funding will allow.  For questions, call April Keeler at 405-425-7285 or to register visit the OKOHS Training Calendar.
