Firefighter training instructors are usually focused on helping crew members train to improve performance. Now, TargetSolutions is launching the NFPA® 1041 Series, built specifically to help instructors improve at their jobs. TargetSolutions will be unveiling this new three-course series, as well as the recently launched NFPA® 1410 series, during FDIC in Indianapolis. TargetSolutions will be at Booth No. 13018 during exhibit hall hours.

SAN DIEGO – TargetSolutions, the leading provider of computer-based training management solutions for public safety agencies, will be shining the spotlight on two new bundles of NFPA®-level training courses during FDIC International 2017.

Stop by booth No. 13018 during exhibit hall hours to receive a firsthand look at 14 new video-based courses written to the NFPA® 1410 standard. The courses deliver step-by-step, high-definition video demonstrations of each evolution. TargetSolutions representatives will be in attendance at FDIC to provide a walkthrough of the bundle, which released to customers in March.

The courses were written and directed by Paul Costello, a training officer at Hillsborough County Fire Rescue in Florida, and produced in conjunction with the St. Charles Fire Department in St. Charles, Mo. and Pasco County Fire Rescue in Land O’ Lakes, Fla.

“The 1410 evolutions are basic single and multi-company evolutions that have been created as a standard for the NFPA,” said Costello, who was recently interviewed by TargetSolutions on the creation of these exciting new courses. “They are representative of some of the most important basic skill sets that fire companies should practice on and master because these are the bread and butter of what we do on a fireground.”

TargetSolutions, which features more than 450 hours of training fire departments, will also be providing live demonstrations of its new NFPA® 1041 training bundle during FDIC’s exhibit hall hours. These courses, scheduled for release in early April, focus on a fire instructor functioning skills and knowledge.

The three levels provide a natural progression for an individual to develop from entry-level instructor to chief of training. Topics explored in this series include preparing and presenting a topic, instructor credibility, curriculum development, instructor selection, and more.

“NFPA 1041 switches things up and approaches the subject matter from the instructor’s perspective. These courses give instructors the tools needed to develop and manage a successful training program.”

Bryan Fitzgerald, Content Manager, TargetSolutions

Also, TargetSolutions is sponsoring a special classroom session, “NFPA 1403: The Fire Instructor’s Risk Management Tool.” Walter Morris, a training program manager with the Maine Fire Service Institute, will be presenting on the topic. The session will be held Friday, April 28 at 10:30 a.m. in Room 132-133.

TargetSolutions will be exhibiting its new NFPA® training content, as well as the previously released NFPA® 1403 Live Fire Training Evolutions course, at Booth No. 13018 during FDIC International 2017. If you have any questions, please contact us today at (800) 840-8046.
