Completing the webinar alone does not meet the requirements for completing ICS 100. You will still need to take the exam offered through FEMA to receive a certificate of completion for IS-100.c.

Please print two copies of the certificate- one for your records and one for your organization's Emergency Preparedness Coordinator.
