Trainee (The Individual) | An individual approved by their employing or sponsoring entity who is preparing to qualify for an ICS position is credentialed as a trainee in that position once any prerequisites are met and the PTB has been initiated. A trainee is eligible for formal, on-the-job training. A Position Candidate will not be assigned as a trainee on an interstate or inter-regional incident or event unless the individual has been identified as a trainee with an initiated PTB.
