Participants should hold elected or executive official level positions in public or private agencies or organizations that would have involvement in emergency preparedness.  There are no specific course prerequisites; however, it is strongly recommended that all participants be certified in FEMA’s incident management courses NIMS IS100, IS200, and IS700 or become familiar with them at before attending this course.
