On August 5, 2005, New Jersey's Acting Governor, Richard J. Codey, signed an Executive Order (#50) directing that all first responders, including mental health and human services workers, complete the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Awareness Course. The training may be taken on-line. To take the course on-line, please click here or on the image above.
To assist disaster mental health responders in completing the required Incident Command System (ICS-100) and National Incident Management (NIMS-700) training programs, the Disaster and Terrorism Branch has developed an online tutorial and orientation to the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) Virtual Campus. Participation in the online tutorial does not substitute for taking the ICS-100 or NIMS-700 course, but can help students use the online programs with greater ease and speed.
