The National Fire Academy invites fire and emergency medical services training officers to apply for pilot offerings of,a new class dubbed 21st Century Training for fire/EMS training officers (P0354). The offerings are scheduled for Sept. 8-13 and Dec. 1-6, 2013, at the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, Md.
The six-day course was developed to help fire and EMS organizations improve training skills and move training programs into the 21st century, according to the NFA. The course teaches how new methods, technologies and safety measures that can be integrated into a local training program. Students will learn how to justify and market these changes as return on investments to the senior staff in their organization, including the fire chief.
Applications must register for a Student Identification Number (see below) and applications must be received by 5 p.m. EDT June 14, 2013.
Fax applications to the NETC Office of Admissions at 301-447-1441 or 301-447-1658. The agency asks applicants to fax two applications (one for each offering) if applying for both offerings. Stipends for eligible students are available. Attendance at this pilot course does not prevent applicants from obtaining another stipend within the same fiscal year, according to the NFA.
