Fire and Emergency Services Instructor Eighth Edition 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: Chapter 1–9 cover Level I, Chapters 10–14 cover Level II, and Chapters 15–17 cover Level III. The text has been shortened from 22 chapters to 17. As a result, the text is more concise and easier to teach. The text reflects new changes in the NFPA standard, including a discussion of bias in instructional and testing materials.
