Firefighter I Certification (Part C)

Course # 47-503-721

Course Description

This 36-hour course prepares the participant to be able to perform fire fighting functions at a minimum nationally recognized level under direct supervision. Some of the 16 Wisconsin Technical College Districts will only offer this course as a 96+ hour course which incorporates Entry Level Fire Fighter Parts 1 & 2. The targeted audience is individuals who have completed the minimum fire fighting training requirements as specified in Comm 30.08, Employment standards, Department of Commerce, Chapter 30, Fire Department Safety and Health, and desire, or are required, to increase their knowledge and skills base to the next level. This course, when taken in conjunction with the Entry Level Fire fighter Part 1 (30 hours) and Part 2 (30 hours) courses, is designed to provide the Fire Fighter I candidate with the additional information needed to meet the job performance requirements (JPRs) defined in NFPA 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, 2008 Edition, Sections 5.2 through 5.5. The participant must also take the Hazardous Materials Operation level course in order to meet the remainder of the NFPA Fire Fighter I JPRs. A written and practical skills certification exam is available to participants who successfully complete this course. A participant who completes this course and wishes to be certified has two years from the completion of the course to take the exams. Participants who successfully pass the certification exams will receive a State of Wisconsin Certificate with an IFSAC (International Fire Service Accreditation Congress) seal which can be accepted by other IFSAC accredited states or entities.

part A and B, you can use that book for Part C as long as it is the current edition.
