Incident Command System (ICS)

The Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized approach to the command, control, and coordination of emergency response providing a common hierarchy within which responders from multiple agencies can be effective.

ICS is widely used by agencies across Canada.

ICS 100 and 200 - Online

ERAC now offers ICS 100 and 200 for free to first responders (firefighters, police, EMS) and our Plan Participant members through our learning management system, Workhub. Please fill out the form below.

These two courses, ICS 100 and ICS 200, are neither recognized nor endorsed by ICS Canada. However, the two internal ERAC adaptations of both courses are sufficient and are a requirement for all ERAC responders who act in response to flammable liquids and LPG incidents.

Note: ICS 200 online does not qualify you to take ICS 300. To move on to ICS 300 you need to take ICS 200 with a certified trainer. Please see information below about instructor-led training. 

ICS 200 and 300 - Instructor-led

ERAC will hold the following instructor-led, ICS Canada-approved sessions:

  • ICS 200 – Times to be determined as per registrants' time zones and preferences
  • ICS 300 – TBD (depending on interest and public health measures)

*Due to COVID-19, these sessions will be virtual for the safety of participants and instructor. At this time, as per ICS Canada, ICS 300 cannot be conducted virtually.

Course time may be adjusted depending on majority of participants' time zones.

ICS Canada certificates will be awarded upon completion of these sessions.

Please fill out the form below or contact Don Merriam, Emergency Response Planning Manager, at
514-714-1075 to inquire about booking one of these courses; a minimum number of people is required to hold an instructor-led training. A flat fee (plus travel expenses, if applicable) is also available to organizations looking to book virtual or in-person training for their staff.
