What's the difference between the different levels?
Level 1 Instructor (48 Hrs): Teaches a class from a prepared lesson plan.
Level 2 Instructor (48 Hrs): Prepares lesson plans and is able to also teach these classes. (And is now required by TCFP to be a lead Instructor)
Level 3 Instructor (60 Hrs): Identifies Objectives to create a training course around and is able to administer the overall instructor program. After a Level 3 Instructor identifies objectives, the Level 2 Instructor develops lesson plans to teach that subject, and the Level 1 Instructor is capable of teaching from that prepared lesson plan.
Our on-line presentation is available. Students will utilize the IFSTA, Fire And Emergency Services Instructor, 8th edition textbook as their primary reference as they view the numerous powerpoint presentations and learn the objectives as outlined by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection.
Upon successful completion of the online portion of the presentation, the student will attend a one-day skill session. While at the skill session, our instructors will review the key points of the course.
Each Instructor I student will instruct a classroom session utilizing the lesson plan provided. Each Instructor II shall develop their entire presentation including lesson plan, powerpoint presentation, test, answer key, and course evaluation form. Each Instructor III student shall complete their skills during the conductions of the course and submit to our office a minimum of one week prior to the hands-on skills session.
