|Fire Service Instructor I/II
This course is designed to provide students with the essential tools and skills to
coordinate training in a local fire/emergency service organization. Course
content deals with a variety of training challenges facing the local training officer,
including dealing with personnel, program planning, delivery, and training liability.
Once again this is a suggested plan of training to provide the firefighter with a
well rounded education and comply with current Federal and State standards. It
is by no means a complete and comprehensive program. This is primarily
classroom training that should be complemented with your department's live fire
training evolutions. There are additional specialty subjects firefighters may take
to increase their skills. This recommended plan covers the basics.
