The Advanced All-Hazards Incident Management Course or AAIM is a National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliant course designed specifically for All-Hazards Incident Management Teams (AHIMT) nationwide. The 48 hour class is intended to fill the needs identified to develop the training of all AHIMT organizations, including Type-1, Type-2 and Type-3 IMTs consistent with state and federal standards.

About AAIM

The AAIM course development was funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the California Office of Emergency Services (CAL OES). The analysis and evaluation of the AAIM course materials was approved on June 2015 by the Department of Homeland Security for meeting the required Federal and State Course Review and Approval process. The AAIM Course is now in the Federal Emergency Management Agency National Preparedness Directorate National Training and Education Division State/Federal Sponsored Course Catalog. The catalog number assigned to AAIM is CA-036-PREV. With the AAIM course now an approved State/Federal Course, federal and state grants may be used to fund this training nationwide. Agencies wanting to host and/or instruct an AAIM Course should contact their State Training Officer or the California State Training Officer for additional information.
