Course description

This 6-day course introduces the Managing Officer to contemporary training methods, including training for safety and instructional technology. Students will formulate a plan to integrate innovative methods, technologies and safety measures into their fire and EMS training programs, including its delivery.

Students will research and experience many of the course concepts and then make decisions as to whether and how these concepts could be integrated into a local training program brought to class by each student.

In keeping with contemporary training, students will receive and process learning materials, activities and resources primarily through the computer. The class is also highly interactive with opportunities to share and learn from others.
