FO253 Fire Officer II Blended / On-Line

Overview

This Fire Officer II program is a 10 week program completed online with the exception of 3 required face to face  course days at TFACA as well as a face to face commission testing day at TFACA. The Fire Officer II blended program is designed for the firefighter or fire officer who is preparing to or entering the middle management level of his/her department. The blended learning course allows students to complete unit assignments through a set 10-week period. During the process, students are tracked by completing up to 8 Unit Assignments plus tests. Units consist of real-world experiences in which the Fire Officer has to make decisions and assume command roles. Each area focuses on not only preparing the student for real world application, but prepares the student to be successful on certification practical and written tests. One added value to the blended program at TFACA is that students are required to attend 3 on-site days. Students are monitored weekly, with all assignments having deadlines. The blended learning system is very interactive and grants students and instructors the ability to never be alone throughout the course.
