All-Hazard Communications Unit Leader (COML) Course - L-969

This 36 hour course helps attendees establish the essential core competencies required for performing the duties of the COMM UL in an all-hazards incident. This course addresses all responsibilities appropriate to a COMM UL operating in a local- or state-level AHIMT.  These responsibilities include the collection, processing and dissemination as needed to facilitate Operations of Command, general Staff, and Unit Leaders within the confines of a Type 3 AH Incident Management Team. The course is an instructor-led training that supports learning through discussion, lecture, and active participation in multiple exercises.  By requiring attendees to bring Communications Unit Leader Kit to the instruction, the course provides a realistic, hands-on approach to mastering the skills of a COMM UL.
