Fire Fighter 1 & 2 is an online fire service training program designed to provide an engaging learning experience for incumbent firefighters who seek continuing education material at the Firefighter I and II level. The goal of this course is to give those firefighters a broader and deeper understanding of material that’s not possible in entry-level training programs that have NFPA Firefighter I and II certifications as their end goal.
The material contained in this course aligns with the Firefighter I and II professional qualifications levels as outlined in the 2013 edition of NFPA 1001, Standard for Firefighter Professional Qualifications. The material also covers the job performance requirements from the 2018 edition of NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents, at both the Awareness and Operations levels.
Learners will benefit from a self-paced training environment as well as an easy-to-use interface to make the course flow smoothly.
Features and benefits of this Firefighter course include:
- A simple, user-friendly interface to ensure that students do not waste time learning how to navigate through material.
