- Train-The-Trainer - This is a comprehensive, instructor development course designed to prepare emergency services personnel as instructors. Participants gain skills in writing instructional objectives, designing effective lesson plans, and developing evaluation instruments. Topics such as understanding the adult learner, methods of instruction, managing the learning environement and new technologies for instruction are also explored.
- Incident Command System - There are certain times when it seems like nothing goes right for the incident commander. The fire doesn’t react according to plan, the building was built to burn and everyone on the fire scene acts like there is a full moon out. A realistic command system must anticipate all the things that can, and routinely do, go wrong on the fire scene.
A fire scene commander who is successful most of the time on most of their fires will use the standard elements present at every fire to establish and maintain command; be responsive to the special characteristics of each situation and apply the command system to every emergency situation.
This 8 hour
class is designed to assist the fire officer in managing emergency incidents. This program teaches the skills necessary to manage both large and small incidents effectively.
