IFSTA Fire and Emergency Services Instructor, 7th edition

This edition of the IFSTA Fire and Emergency Services Instructor manual provides the information necessary to meet the job performance requirements set out in NFPA 1041, Standard for Fire Service Instructor Professional Qualifications (2007) for Levels I, II, III. Rewritten and reorganized from previous editions, the 7th edition is intended to meet two different needs. First, it provides the information separately necessary to teach courses for each level. By combining the information found in Part A with the appropriate level-specific information in one of the other parts, a training division or agency can develop a certification program suited to their needs. Second, the manual acts as a general reference for current instructors who may be required to perform duties outside their current certification level. For instance, a Level I instructor may be called upon to create a lesson plan, normally the responsibility of a Level II instructor, and will find this information included in the manual helpful.
