Fire Inspection Principles I N0390

Course description

This six-day course introduces the student to the fundamental methodology for application of fire and life safety codes and standards. Although it contains many of the basic principles of code enforcement, more experienced code inspectors and officials might find it useful as a review of essential methodologies and as a useful update to current code enforcement applications. It is not the intent of this course to present specific code requirements, however this course focuses more on the methodology of the use of these requirements. The "Fire Inspection Principles II" course is intended to provide additional material on the code applications to fire protection systems as an extension of material presented in this course.

Selection criteria

  • Individuals with at least one year’s experience whose primary duties are those of a full-time code enforcement inspector/officer.
  • Individuals who have the responsibility to train personnel involved in full-time code enforcement activities.

Note: Special consideration will be given to individuals and departments starting new fire prevention bureaus or preparing an individual as an instructor for a code enforcement training program within their department.

Conducting Local Risk Reduction by Company Officer (N0186)

Course description

This new 6-day NFA course seeks to improve the skills of Company Officers (COs) to lead and conduct risk-reduction activities within the service area of their station/community. The course is both for the CO who is currently engaged in risk-reduction activities and the CO who desires to lay the foundation to start community risk reduction.

CLRRCO is about how a local fire station can plan, implement, and evaluate risk-reduction activities to benefit the citizens it serves. The course features the role of the CO as an inspirational leader both within the fire station and in the service area of the station/community.

Students learn that a broader approach to fire protection involves multiple interventions, and when all are applied to a specific community risk issue, a difference is likely to occur, reducing risk for the citizens. Students also learn that by reducing the community’s risk, the risk for firefighting forces is also reduced.

The course emphasizes risk-reduction activities, which enable station personnel through development and implementation of a plan, to reduce risks within their station service area. Students will have the opportunity to develop/simulate a plan to lead station personnel to reduce risks in their own service area.

Selection criteria

  • Company Officers who have station-based responsibility for a service area.
  • Consideration also given to acting Company Officers who have station-based responsibility for a service area.

Prerequisites

ICS-100-level and ICS-200-level training. Preferred courses are Q0462 and Q0463, available through NFA Online at www.usfa.fema.gov/training/nfa/courses/online.html. Chief’s signature attests that the applicant has completed this required training.
