Public Servcies Update May 2017
A new National Operational Guidance (NOG) for Incident Command has recently been produced to support fire and rescue services to make sure consistent, safe and effective incident command practices are carried out. The NOG policy guidance is accompanied by The Foundation for Incident Command.
We have produced a guidance note to allow centres delivering Pearson Edexcel Incident Command programmes to link the current unit specification assessment criteria with the new NOG for Incident Command.The guidance note highlights the differences between the assessment criteria and the NOG. It also provides additional supporting information to enable centres to understand how best to interpret the qualification requirements in relation to their programmes.
The guidance relates to the following Pearson Edexcel programmes:
- Level 3 Award in Initial Incident Command in Fire and Rescue Services
- Level 4 Award in Intermediate Incident Command in Fire and Rescue Services
- Level 6 Award in Advanced Incident Command in Fire and Rescue Services
