New Zealand CIMS

A Breakdown of CIMS Training for NZ Businesses

The release of our CIMS 2 & 4 training did not necessarily come from market demand for Emergency Management training or warden training.

Although this course has always been the most searched for term in the Emergency Management category, Google seldom provides results for corporate and partner training programs.

A corporate and partner training program is essentially cross-functional and organisational CIMS training. After all, the training is universal, but the collaboration and communication of processes is not.

It’s this requirement that arose in a conversation we recently had. A client who is currently engaged in a significant, multi-agency project wondered if it’s both easier and affordable to conduct these courses as a group – meaning all parties understand early on how communications should be handled.

We often see the challenge that organisations go through in encouraging and engaging best practice to less mature third-parties or partners. It’s uncommon that conversations end with any real actionable steps in planning programs as one.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. The larger the organisations and the more fingers in the pie does not mean basics need to be missed.

You’ve likely been there; aligning diaries, picking venues, working on objectives & outcomes. It often results in a you putting the task in the too hard basket.

With our new corporate CIMS program, we do it all for you. Not only can organisations in joint ventures / agreements receive tailored and unique training, they also get the opportunity to be in the same room and agree on a process that works for their situation.

Our facilitators are seasoned on CIMS, but more so on wider organisational resilience; offering a chance to understand and discuss wider techniques the CIMS model misses. Yes, you’ll get CIMS training, but you’ll get a deeper knowledge of how you should implement it in your day-to-day activities.

What we do to help

Taking our above client’s example, we’re able to review and assess the unique situation they’re in, the value of this, and timelines needed.

Next, we focus on getting the facilitation of the training happening (think location, timescales, getting the relevant people attending etc).  That obviously means we’ll be making the phone calls and ensuring the all parties are prepared.

Once all of this is agreed, the invoice can be sent to either the key contact/organisation, or it can be split, or paid through an online payment gateway instantly

We spend time understanding the organisations involved, either over the phone, researching online or reading agreements. This ensures when we’re in a room, we know exactly who sits where.

During the training, you’ll look at the underpinning principles of CIMS, Legislation that is used in conjunction with CIMS principles, the structure, roles and responsibilities of a CIMS Incident Management team, the scalable and modular nature of CIMS and consistent response documentation that is used across all responding agencies that use CIMS.

The result

Simply put, you’re prepared, ready to go, aware and confident. Not only in yourself, but those (often new) partners you’re working with. You all know what processes you’ll useduring an event. That sort of preparedness is priceless.

If this is of interest and something you think your people will see real value in, contact us to begin.
