  • Clearly listing all instructors (both lead and assistants) on rosters is helpful in verification of instructor activity for recertification

To Renew Your EOI Status

There are two primary requirements that must be met in order for individuals to renew their MCIM I and II Instructor status:

  1. You must have participated as an instructor in at least two (2) Mass Casualty Incident Management Module II courses during the pasttwo (2) years.  This can be done as an assistant or as the lead instructor for the course.
  2. You must attend an Education Coordinator Update.  This provides additional information on paperwork changes or any other administrative changes that have occurred.
  • In order to verify that your renewal requirements have been met please send a copy of the rosters for the courses taught, as well as information on which Education Coordinator Update was attended, to the Division of Emergency Operations Assistant Manager.  Once this information has been received and reviewed, your endorsement as an MCIM I and II Instructor may be renewed.
