NIMS 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.
