GICS educates and empowers its clients in the effective implementation and use of ICS through its unique Incident Command Competency Framework. This framework supports the accelerated development of both organizational and employee level competencies in the real life application of the Incident Command System and Emergency Management best practices.

Although ICS is now well established and has been adopted by many private sector organizations, more often than not, post event evaluations or After Action Reports (AAR’s) indicate certain aspects of the organization’s ICS implementation fell short in some key areas. Inadequate training being noted as one of the most prevalent issues resulting in strategic and tactical deficiencies during a response.

Following its unique approach for developing ICS and EOC position specific competencies, Global-ICS goes well beyond the theory by providing implementation strategies and training progressions that address applied levels of learning, competency development and organizational readiness at every opportunity.
