From Rob Flory, KA5RUC

Per the SEC we now have three levels of ARES membership.

Level 1:  This is an “Entry Level”  (not just for beginners) for volunteers who have not completed NIMS.  (It was our old Ohio level 2.) Your time and energy is very much appreciated, and you are encouraged to complete the four NIMS courses to advance to the new Level 2. 

 

Level 2: (Our former Tier 1) This is the general activation level for ARES members. Having completed the four NIMS courses, you will be available for activation either locally or as an ARESMAT service to another location. You will also be considered qualified to operate in an EOC environment.

 

Level 3: This is a new, higher level envisioned for ARES leadership. Current structure calls for the additional completion of IS 300/400. We realize that is usually a two-day, weekday course so there will be latitude given on when this will be fully required. You’re encouraged to pursue upper level training suc h as COML, COMT but we understand they are not currently required.

This change is effective immediately.
