- IS-200: ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents
- IS-700: National Incident Management System, An Introduction
- IS-800: National Response Framework, An Introduction

- ICS-300: Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents and G-2300: Intermediate Emergency Operations Center Functions (in person only)
There are many additional training opportunities available through the State of Ohio and also Cuyahoga County. Please visit the links below for opportunities. Please note that most classes fill up extremely quickly, and volunteers may be bumped from certain classes to make space for career public safety professionals.
