IFSTA Fire and Emergency Services Instructor 8th Edition Released

New IFSTA Manual & Supplemental Materials Released

Huntington Beach, CA (Firefighters Bookstore) - The new 8th Edition of IFSTA’s Fire and Emergency Services Instructor and all of its supplemental material is now available at the Firefighters Bookstore. This manual helps students meet the job performance requirements of NFPA® 1041, Standard for Fire Service Instructor Professional Qualifications (2012) for Instructor levels I, II, and III. The manual also provides a reference for instructors who may perform duties outside of their current certification levels.

This new edition has been reorganized to provide clearer separations between the three instructor levels: Ch. 1-9 cover Level I; Ch. 10-14, Level II; and Ch. 15-17 Level III. The text has been shortened from 22 chapters to 17. As a result, the text is more concise and easier to teach. Finally, the text reflects new changes in the NFPA® standard, including a discussion of bias in instructional and testing materials.
