    Default Lookup NIMS online classes?

    Is there a way to look up my own certifications from the online NIMS classes? I did it so long ago, I have no paper record of it.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    You have to either call or email them with a transcript request now.

    Excellent, thanks guys. Will this show both classroom and the online courses? I have the usual online ones and I also have the 400 classroom (brain damage gouge my eye out with a spoon class...)

    You may have to contact the State Fire School or State Homeland Security or Emergency Management for the ICS300 & ICS400. FEMA/EMI doesn't always have the records for those classes. The States are tasked with that responsibility.

    Just drive over to Emmitsburg to get the others from the NETC.

    They aren't "certs," they're just classes and proof of having taken them. As far as FEMA is concerned, you only need to take each one once.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    Only in the sense of a "certificate of completion" saying that you took the class. You don't get "certified" in NIMS in the same sense you might get "certified" as FF-I or EMT.

    Sorry, it's an occupational nit-pick. Every piece of paper saying you took a class isn't necessarily a "certification."
