   At the state ARES meeting in Raleigh on April 24, 2010, the policy was adopted that ICS courses 100, 200, 700 and 800 will be required for all ARES appointees at the level of county Emergency Coordinator (EC) and higher (DEC, ASEC and SEC) as of July 1, 2010. This is in compliance with a 2006 order from former Gov. Easley. Appointments for those who donít meet the July 1st deadline will be held for 30 days before replacements will be made. Also, Assistant Emergency Coordinators (AECs) within counties are not required to complete the four courses, but they must if they want to be included in the N.C. ARES database. ICS training is required for municipal and state Emergency Operations Center (EOC) assignments, and for mutual aid response across county and state lines.
