Incident Management Team – Leader
Learn How to Coordinate an Emergency Response
The purpose of the Incident Management Team – Leader course is to develop the skills and knowledge of personnel so that they can coordinate IMT activities to either support or directly respond to both off-shore and on-shore incidents in line with their company’s requirements.
This training applies to personnel in an incident coordinator role who is required to minimise the escalation of the incident, allocate resources and assets, plan tactical responses, communicate with the incident response team, interact with external agencies required to assist with the emergency, and gather information about the incident.
This unit of competency applies to an individual working alone or as part of a team or group and working in liaison with other incident control centre team members, the incident manager and the incident support management group, as appropriate.
The incident coordinator is responsible for interactions between corporate headquarters, on-site incident response teams and the person in charge of the facility. There may be more than one incident response team involved depending on the size and complexity of the incident.
The incident control centre and incident manager may be stationed on the facility or away from the facility or plant.
