The CG LMS course will automatically enter completion data into TMT.
  • ICS-100 (Intro to ICS): There are now several ways to complete ICS-100:
    A. On line through the CG Learning Management System (LMS) which can be found on the CG Portal Training and Education tab or FEMA website:

    A. On line through the CG Learning Management System (LMS) which can be found on the CG Portal Training and Education tab or FEMA website: http://training.fema.gov/emiweb/IS/crslist.asp. The CG LMS course will automatically enter completion data into TMT.

The CG LMS course will automatically enter completion data into TMT. The ICS-210 is designed for Single Resource Leader/Type 5 and Type 4 Incident Commanders. The course specifically focuses on initial incident assessment, initial incident management (includes assuming command, organization, and execution), the development and use of the ICS-201, Transfer of Command, and the ICS-204. Prerequisite is ICS-100 and ICS-200.  Requirements for those needing to take the ICS-210 are listed in CPPM Vol 4, COMDTINST M3010.24 chapter 10.
  • ICS-300 Intermediate ICS (Course Code 501377): ICS-300 is a four-day class.

    As per CPPM Vol 4, COMDTINST M3010.24. personnel seeking to obtain Coast Guard ICS position specific competencies shall attend the Coast Guard version of the ICS-300 course (Course code: 501377). The performance training system enhancements in the Coast Guard version, which are not found in the FEMA version, of the ICS-300 course establish the expected baseline ICS knowledge prior to attendance of advanced ICS position specific courses provided by FORCECOM. CG version is longer (4 days vice 2.5), covers significantly more material and is performance based. This means the student will gain notably better knowledge by attending the CG course. If a student does not desire to obtain ICS position specific competencies, then the FEMA course will meet the basic requirement.  The course completion will be automatically be entered in Direct Access but not in TMT.

What if I have lost my ICS Course Certificates?

  • If the ICS course information has already been entered in TMT, the member does not need certificate again to prove training for CG purposes.
  • For USCG ICS courses, records of who attended ICS courses are NOT kept. If the member has a lost certificate and the information has not been entered in TMT, the members can contact the instructor who taught the course and see if they kept a record of attendance.   
  • For FEMA's Emergency Management Institute ICS Courses: CG members who completed Independent Study Courses through FEMA's EMI (e.g., IS-100, 200, 700, 800) and lost their certificates can complete and mail the EMI Transcript Request Form to receive proof of all EMI courses completed by the member. Their Website says about 30 days for response (usually quicker from our experience).
