All-Hazards Incident Management Team Certification

Flowchart for progression

SQRC Flow Chart.pdf

If you are interested in pursuing certification there are three paths in Wyoming.

Step 1

  • Traditional

    • This includes a position task book, education, and experience via application process to gain certification. We do allow direct entry into positions via the AHITMA standard.

    • This is likely the path most folks in WY will take.

  • Reciprocity

      1. This path is for those already possessing certification from an entity like NWCG, USCG, or other SQRC recognized entity.

  • Recognition of Prior Learning

      1. In Wyoming, this only applies to the "non-traditional" FEMA NQS positions. This path has been retired as a method in WY for typical ICS positions through AHIMTA.

Physical Fitness

Additionally, please be aware that certain Position Task Books will have annual physical fitness requirements. The physical fitness levels are: Light, Medium, Arduous, or None Required. A description of each physical fitness level is as follows:

  • Light - Duties mainly involve office type work with occasional field activity characterized by light physical exertion requiring basic good health. Activities may include climbing stairs, standing, operating a vehicle and long hours of work, as well as some bending stooping, or light lifting.

  • Moderate - Duties involve fieldwork requiring complete control of all physical faculties and may include considerable walking over irregular ground, standing for long periods of time, lifting 25 to 50 lbs, climbing, bending, stooping, squatting, twisting and reaching.

  • Strenuous - Duties involve fieldwork requiring physical performance calling for above average endurance and superior conditioning. These duties may include an occasional demand for extraordinarily strenuous activities in emergencies under adverse environmental conditions and over extended periods of time.

  • None Required - Positions that do not required a physical fitness level.
