Live Fire Instructor

The Live Fire Instructor Credential Program is a unique blend of distance learning and intense 3-day hands on academy focusing on the responsibilities of instructors charged with the important safety duties of a live fire instructor.

This course is based on the NFPA 1403 Standard on Live Fire Training for its content and references Live Fire Instructor Principles and Practices by Jones & Bartlett as its text. Students will complete an extensive online course prior to the hands on portion and will challenge a series of written and practical examinations to earn this 3 year credential.
