The Maryland Responds MRC Online Orientation Training (Version 2.0) is now available online! All Maryland Responders are required to successfully complete the Maryland Responds Orientation training to satisfy the core training requirement to reach Ready Responder Status and to be eligible for deployments.
The online orientation training (version 2.0) incorporates an introduction to the National Incident Management System and the Incident Command System with an overview of the Maryland Responds MRC deployment protocols. As with the previous version, the revised online orientation training is a condensed version of the in-class orientation training, intended to provide you with the basic, yet vital, information you need to prepare for your role as a Maryland Responder. For those who took a previous version of the orientation training (online or in-class), we highly recommend that you take the revised version of the course as it contains several updates and new material.
To take the Maryland Responds MRC Online Orientation Version 2.0, log on to the Maryland Responds Online Training Site (or create an account if you haven’t already): http://mdresponds.myicourse.com/.
