ISFSI Launches Training Officer Credential Program

June 8, 2016
The International Society of Fire Service Instructors has launched the Training Officer Credential designation.

The International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) launched the Training Officer Credential designation at the Central Arizona Regional Training Academy in Prescott, AZ.  Thirteen credential candidates from ten departments participated in the first program.

“ISFSI recognized the need to establish an opportunity for today's aspiring, emerging, developing, or practicing fire service instructor, training officer, fire officer and allied training personnel to qualify their professional status," shared Leigh Hubbard, Executive Director of ISFSI. "This credential is designed to elevate the standards of instructor professionalism."

“The ISFSI credential designation provides instructors a direct pathway to develop and advance as professional educators and will bridge the gap between fire service professional development, the professional credentialing of instructors, and the accreditation of emerging training curriculums and eLearning platforms and programs,” stated ISFSI President Steve Pegram.

Successful candidates have their education, training and experiences validated on a professional platform.  The credential authenticates their contributions to the industry and provides employers a tangible recognition of the employee's professional accomplishments. 

Successfully credentialed candidates are issued a three-year designation by the ISFSI and are eligible for 32 hours of continuing education credit by Columbia Southern University.
