In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, one semester hour in fire science or emergency management.

This updated two-day course is designed for the responder(s) who may be responsible for initial and expanded command of incidents involving terrorism. The course is intended to build upon the students' existing skills as Incident Commanders (ICs) and practitioners of the Incident Command System (ICS), with knowledge of National Incident Management System, the National Response Framework, and terrorism.

The class will assist the officers in preparing an effective response to the consequences of terrorism. ICs must be prepared to operate as part of a multiagency, multidiscipline and multijurisdictional response. The course uses lecture supported by case studies and practice scenarios to address the command and control challenges that will likely confront the IC. This will enable the students to apply their knowledge of pre-incident planning, managing emergency incidents, and operating as part of a Unified Command structure to ensure the safety of responders while bringing the incident to a successful conclusion.
