INTERSTATE QUALIFICATIONS COMMITTEE:
The AHIMTA Incident Qualifications System (IQS) Committee is comprised of a group of subject matter experts from regional and national agencies and incident management teams from across the United States. This Committee is responsible for the development, creation and revision of the AHIMTA Interstate Incident Management Teams Qualifications System (IIMTQS), which is comprised of the IIMTQS Guide, the Position Descriptions and the All-Hazards Position Task Books.
AHIMTA IQS document drafts, such as the IIMQS Guide and Position Task Books, are posted on the AHIMTA website with a request for public comment within a specified time frame. All comments are reviewed and adjudicated before final publication and implementation. Public comments are a vital part of the Committee’s process and you are encouraged to give us your observations and opinions.
