This six-day course is designed to provide students with the essential tools and skills to coordinate training in a small local fire/EMS organization. The target audience consists of those people who have responsibility for the training in their organization. A training function in a smaller department typically may include conducting training drills and coordinating training with a nearby larger city or state training function. Course content deals with a variety of training challenges facing the local training officer, including dealing with personnel, program planning, delivery, training liability, etc. The course requirements include class activities, homework, two examinations, and a small individual project.
Note: This course is not designed to teach course development or presentation skills. Students who have taken the two-week on-campus course “Training Program Management” (R0342) will not be admitted to this class.
