Building upon the basic foundations of the Incident Command System, Operations Section Chief is designed to provide government and private industry emergency management and response personnel with a robust understanding of the duties, responsibilities, and capabilities of an effective Operations Section Chief (OSC) on an Incident Management Team at the Type 2 level. These responsibilities fall into two categories:

  1. Response to the incident and command needs of the incident; and
  2. Effectively fulfilling the position responsibilities of an Incident Commander on an ICS Incident Management Team.

This course is an instructor-led training that supports learning through discussion, lecture, and active participation in multiple exercises that provides a realistic, hands-on approach to mastering the skills required of an Operations Section Chief.
