Course Description:
This course of instruction will take the company officer to the next level of leadership. This program is equivalent to the traditional classroom program with 50% less time and travel investment. You will take 50% of your class from home using highly interactive CD-based training and a minimum of a dial-up Internet connection. After taking this part of the class on-line, the skills and activities such as group discussion and tactics will be provided in a traditional class environment. Your instructor will monitor your progress at all times and you will be able to share your efforts and projects with fellow students by e-mail. You will also participate in 30 hours of traditional class where you can share your experience and knowledge with other students. We believe that this new initiative will suit the needs of many fire officers through out the state. The class will be given the same credit as the traditional one but will involve less time away from work and home. Upon completion, students will have a better understanding of the following topics: managing personnel, fire ground operations, NIMS, code enforcement, public speaking and CISD. This program will also prepare the student for Fire Officer III. The pre-requisite to take Fire Officer II classroom is Fire Officer I. The student does not need to be certified to the level of Fire Officer I, but does need to have completed the Fire Officer I 60-hour program and posses a completion certificate. To take the certification exam for Fire Officer II, the candidate shall meet the requirements set forth by NFPA 1021, which states: For qualification at Level II, the Fire Officer I shall meet the requirements of Fire Instructor I as defined in NFPA 1041 and the job performance requirements defined in Sections 5.2 through 5.7 of the 1021 Standard.
