    Not in Ohio, but I just did the VA DFP Instructor I a few months ago (matter-O-fact taking the Instructor II final exam tonight).

    These are NFPA 1041 classes so I'm assuming they should be about the same.

    Our pre-test for instructor I was all Basic FF I & II knowledge. The Instructor I class is designed to teach you "how" to teach and how different people learn, not "what" to teach so they will first want to make sure you have the core knowledge of the material before you begin to teach it.

    I'd say brush up on your essentials book and you should be fine.

    Good Luck with the pre-test and the class.

    N2DFire is correct...in Ohio too (where I am an instructor)...the Knowledge test (pre-test, if you will) is the state fire test at your current level (36hr, 120 or Level II)....during your instructor class, you will learn teaching techniques for the adult learner.

    Last I recall you have to pass the Knowledge test with an 80%.

    Good luck

    Chief, the Ohio knowledge test is the FF II test no matter what your current Cert. level:

    To be eligible for fire instructor certification, you must have at least five years work experience as a firefighter including the 3 years immediately prior to submission of an application for instructor status, and pass a written exam that demonstrates a level of knowledge in firefighting consistent with FF Level II (80% to pass).
    After Instructor certification, you can instruct up to your current cert. level ( Volunteer, FF I or FF II)
