Wisconsin Fire Service Certification Program Procedures.
Pribyl, Paul F.
These procedures for the Wisconsin Fire Service Certification Program provide professional qualification standards for three levels of fire fighter and four levels of fire service instructor. A section on program authority/operations covers program development, the credential review system, and revocation of certification. Requirements for participation are summarized, including the approved course outline for levels 1 and 2. Prerequisites for the three levels of Certified Fire Fighter are then defined for three areas: prerequisites for entry, fire service experience requirements; and prerequisites for examination (actual fire fighting, practical skill examination, and state written certification examination). Standards for the four levels of Certified Fire Service Instructor present information on prerequisites, instructor requirements, facility certification, course description, and state written certification examination. An appendix provides six forms that must be completed before the final state written certification examination can be conducted. (YLB)
