Company Officer I and II

Course Description:

The purpose of the Fire Officer I course is to provide entry-level fire officers with the knowledge and skills to meet minimum job performance requirements for paid and volunteer fire officers. Fire Officer I candidates must demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary to function safely and effectively as an integral member of a firefighter team. When engaged in hazardous activities, the Fire Officer I works under direct supervision of a senior company officer and as a team leader.

The purpose of the Fire Officer II course is to provide officers at the second level of progression with the knowledge and skills to meet the minimum job performance requirements for paid and volunteer fire officers. Fire Officer II candidates must demonstrate the depth of knowledge and skills necessary to function under general supervision. A person trained at the Fire Officer II level will function safely and effectively as an integral member of a team of equally or less experienced firefighters to accomplish a series of tasks.

This is a combined Fire Officer I & II program and will not be separated.

The Company Officer program provides insight into the role of the officer as defined by the 2014 Edition of NFPA 1021, the Standard for Fire Officer Professional Qualifications.
