Here at Infolearners, we’re all about supporting our clients. That’s how we’ve found success in helping businesses become market leaders and how we continue to be the leading provider of s260 online courses . We know how important it is to have flexibility in what you learn. That’s why we offer s260 training in a variety of formats.
S-260 may be delivered as instructor-led (classroom) or self-directed (online) training.
NWCG training materials are being updated to reduce redundancy and conflict among overlapping documents. Course-specific student workbooks will be replaced by standards-bearing NWCG publications – the documents that actually guide operations. Instructor guidance will be integrated into PowerPoint presentations rather than located in separate documents. Instructors may use the instructor guide file (exported from the PowerPoint presenter notes), view the notes in presentation mode, or export the notes into the desired format.
This course is an online/instructor led course. There will be both a classroom room option (15 student slots) and a virtual classroom (30 student slots available). All students will need to complete the online version quizzes and final exam for completion/credit. The online course will have instructor enhancements and direction through each module.
This course meets the general training needs of all positions for which an understanding of interagency incident business management is required. The NWCG Standards for Interagency Incident Business Management, PMS 902, is used as the primary job aid to supplement this course. It provides basic policy and direction for incident business management.
