Incident Communications Center Manager (INCM) Training Course
COMLs and COMTs are not the only communications professionals who manage the communications needs of an incident. For some incidents, the COML establishes an Incident Communications Center staffed with Radio Operators to provide communications support for operations. Once radio personnel are on scene, it becomes important for an Incident Communications Center Manager (INCM) to be assigned for coordination purposes and to avoid span-of-control issues.
The All-Hazards Incident Communications Center Manager course is designed to prepare Communication Unit Leaders, Dispatch Supervisors and public safety communication professionals for managing all functions in the Incident Communications Center. The course is taught by instructors with experience in dispatch operations, COML and INCM. Each attendee participates in hands-on training with mach exercises and receives a position task book.
