IMT Task Books


Qualification standards are essential to Colorado’s emergency management community to ensure that individuals or members of an All-Hazards Incident Management Team (AHIMT) follow unified attributes and conformed standards. These standards allow any community to plan for, request and utilize these resources with high confidence in their technical and professional abilities. Qualification standards ensure unity of effort for response personnel to be matched by a community’s request and bolsters effective resource management of deployed responders.

Implementation of Colorado AHIMT position qualification standards ensures that both the requesting community and providing entity in Colorado or from another state receive qualified incident management personnel (skills, experience, and technical abilities) using the equivalent certification criteria. The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) is committed to improving emergency management and response capabilities for members of any AHIMT throughout Colorado.

Colorado All-Hazards Incident Management Team Position Task Book Qualification Program

The State of Colorado adopted the original Interstate Incident Management Team Qualifications System Guide (IIMTQS) in July of 2015. In October of 2018, the prior IIMTQS was renamed to the Interstate Incident Management Qualifications System Guide (IIMQS). The IIMQS provides a framework of best practices to develop, assess, apply and sustain and qualification program for All-Hazards incident management personnel. It promotes a common understanding of the fundamental standards to be used by the certification body for individuals to develop and certify toward the National Incident System (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS) credentialing structure. The State implemented All-Hazards Position Specific Task Books (PTBs) will train and develop a cadre of emergency responders in ICS positions throughout the state
