Develop the next generation of effective educators with Fire Service Instructor: Principles and Practice.
This new, high-impact training program created by NFPA, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), and the International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) meets and exceeds the requirements in the 2007 edition NFPA 1041: Standard for Fire Service Instructor Professional Qualifications. This case-based book, which uses a clear, concise, and user-friendly writing style, is the core of an integrated teaching and learning system that supports instructors and prepares students to become effective educators in the fire and emergency services fields.
- Fire Instructor I and II-level material from the 2007 NFPA 1041 is combined in each chapter, to provide a solid foundation on how personnel can work together and to ensure they understand the responsibilities of each level.
- Extensive discussion of today's best practices and the latest technology-based learning resources addresses software applications, web-based learning tools, and teaching within "blended" learning environments.
- Examples of forms and sample policies are found in each chapter.
- Case studies with follow-up questions encourage critical thinking and enable students to immediately apply what they've learned.
- In the "voice of experience" feature, veteran fire instructors share accounts of memorable incidents and offer advice and encouragement.
- Tips are provided on how to incorporate current fire service initiatives, such as the Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) course objectives and the National Fallen Fire Fighter Foundation's 16 Fire Fighter Life Safety Initiatives.
