'The GES exam is the first requirement needed to start training for Mission Scanner, Mission Observer, Mission Pilot, Mission Ground Support, and more than 20 more mission related duties.  It can also lead to further qualifications such as Emergency Services Officer (which is Specialty Track 213).  

The first step:  General Emergency Services (GES rating)

Click here for the online exam, CAPT 116
         and here for  ICS-100 (ICS-100b)
 

Note: IS-100, ICS-100 and I-100 are the same course.   

Since this is an open book exam, you may want to download a copy of the Powerpoint presentation to your computer so you can easily review the material as you take the online quiz.  A clever way to do this is to open two windows on your computer, one with the presentation and the second one with the test.  Read the test question and then review the presentation for the answer.  This may sound like cheating, but you'll actually be learning the material, and that's the objective.  At the end of the test you'll be told whether you passed.
 

Once you have passed the test(s):
1) Download your 'Certificate(s) of Completion'
2) Save a copy for your personal records
3) Consult the latest Org Chart to identify the current Emergency Services Officer
4) Email a copy of your certificate(s) to the ES Officer so that the he/she can keep the records up to date for inspections.  Alternately, print a copy and hand deliver or snail mail it to the appropriate ES officer.


One or more parts of CAPT 117 will be required for further ES ratings so this is a good time to take the tests and print the certificates as you did the CAPT 116.
