nims five year training plan3

To serve as a single-source, regularly updated compilation all aspects of NIMS training;

To provide explicit guidance for all NIMS-related training courses, applicable to all levels of government, the private sector, and NGOs;

Provide sufficient guidance to allow other stakeholders to create long-term plans, objectives, and action items for their own training programs; and

To establish specific strategic objectives for the next five years, to guide the actions of the National Integration Center as it provides leadership of national NIMS training.

possible additional analytic inputs
IMT deployment analysis

Identify and analyze data that describes frequency of deploying IMT’s of various sizes

Analysis could yield geographic data on who/how many must be trained

Translate deployment data into capability guidance based on operational need (distribution/likelihood of mission demands for emergency response requiring IMT capability of various scales)

Possible Additional Analytic Inputs
