A must have for every fire department training officer!
In order to be an effective educator within a modern fire department, training officers require knowledge and skills that often exceed what they have learned in their formalized training. The Training Officers Desk Reference goes beyond traditional fire instructor training standards and requirements to teach readers how to adapt by incorporating new ideas, training drills, and alternative learning methods. Authored by a team of expert fire service educators, this essential manual will assist readers in becoming dynamic, effective training officers in the classroom, on the training grounds, and beyond.
Whether employed at a paid, combination, volunteer, or industrial fire department, the Training Officers Desk Reference will help training officers train for situational awareness, improve hands-on training drills, improve adaptability and recognition primed decision making skills, and find new and innovative methods to deliver training within their department.
