This course provides EOC personnel with the fundamentals of intelligence analysis. Effective analysis involves the ability to discern meaning from disparate pieces of information. This is both art and science. Information analysis is the foundational skillset required for developing institutional situational awareness during EOC activation.
This course includes detailed instruction covering analysis concepts, theory, capabilities, tools, and techniques for achieving a more effective situation development capability in support of emergency operations.
Despite the importance having an effective EOC situational development capability for all types of incidents, there are few resources available for individuals and teams to improve their capabilities in this arena. This course is designed to build the analytical skills, knowledge, and capabilities of individuals, teams, and organizations involved in all-hazards, all-phases of emergency preparedness response and recovery.
The course supports the Communications and Information Management component of the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
