ICS/NIMS Courses

Since many events utilize the Incident Command Structure (ICS) it is recommended to complete a few of the online courses that are available. Amateur radio operators are also encouraged to join their local ARES group for additional training opportunities.


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.
