I just completed the ICS 300 & 400 classes at AACO EOC a few weeks ago. It was a 3-day combined course. They must be taken in a classroom setting. They are offered periodically at no cost. Check with your local county emergency management to get a slot.

Guys,I got this back from MEMA regarding the training question I sent to Gary.Obviously they cant hold us responsible for something that we cant get... but we need to be thinking about EVERYONE completing the basic course work and those of us in management positions working on the 300/400 courses.Jim

100, 200, 700 and 800 Definite for everyone in your group
300: State Mars Director , Assistant State Mars Director, Emergency Operations Officer, Training Officer AAM3TMD
Administrative Officer, Interoperability Officer
400: State Mars Director , Assistant State Mars Director, Emergency Operations Officer,
WOW I missed that.. glad you caught it.. and I agree 100% with the training being in there.
by the way .. exactly what are your requirements 100, 200, 700 and 800 I am reasonably shure about but what about 300/400 or COMML... do these enter into it/.
And 2 weeks is insignificant.. past experience has shown me that HQ will take a lot longer than that.
You know once we get your winlink station up and running you might want to think about installing it in other critical infrastructure entities around the state. If you have an interoperability work group I would be glad to come put on a dog and pony show for them in the future. Somewhere around here I have a slide show just for that purpose.
We will also be going to several clubs in the near future and putting on a similar show to recruit more members.
