CLASSES DO NOT NEED TO BE TAKEN IN ORDER
The course topics are developed upon NFPA 1021 Standards for Fire Officer & NFPA 1051 Standards for Wildland Fire Officer. Therefore, it is critical that you take this from an instructor who will NOT read PowerPoint slides to you. If you’re tired of paying a fee and getting a “B” for classes you attend and sitting through these classes where the instructor is not experienced to teach the topics of the class!
Elite Command Training’s pragmatic style of instructors provides the “adult learner” with the most down-to-earth and relevant information for the administration/supervision/management/leadership environments today. He provides you with the information you need to know so that you can apply your new knowledge to your day-to-day duties. This class will improve your knowledge, skill sets, and abilities for the Chief Officer position. If you’re looking to promote to the next level and be at the top of your promotional list then this class is for you!!
NOTE: Please bring a lab-top computer with you each day of class. Student materials will be on a flash drive.
