Intermediate Incident Command in the Fire Service - Development

Course overview and learning outcomes

This course aims to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding of existing Initial Incident Commanders in preparation for an Intermediate Incident Commander role. The course will expose aspiring Intermediate (Level 2) Incident Commanders to a range of operational scenarios in the simulated environment. Each delegate will be supported via coaching and mentoring by Fire Service Officers with extensive operational experience who will provide delegates with support, guidance and advice throughout the course. This course should be recognised as a substantial development opportunity prior to attending the accredited ICL 2 course and is not formally assessed, although delegates will receive feedback and potentially development plans based on performance.

The learner will:

  • Develop an understanding of key roles and responsibilities at Tactical Incident Command
