About


The Missouri Emergency Services Instructor Conference prepares and presents training programs for emergency services personnel and public fire educators. Instructors and other supervisory personnel will find this conference valuable in planning for the training needs of their organizations. Whether you are just starting out or have been involved with training for many years, this conference will benefit you.

 

Preconference

This year we are excited to expand our traditional preconference offering of train-the-trainer courses to also include two Missouri Division of Fire Safety certification eligible courses delivered in an online blended format.

 

Online Blended Learning

Online blended learning courses trade a significant portion of travel and classroom time for the convenience of structured, interactive online learning with remote instructor support. Participants must register and complete the self-paced online modules in addition to attending the course during the preconference.

 

Train-the-Trainer Courses

Train-the-Trainer courses are reserved for certified instructors recognized by the Missouri Division of Fire Safety. If you are not affiliated with a Missouri fire department, this requirement may be waived. Participants will receive all of the curriculum and training that will enable you to deliver the selected courses to your agency as a MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute Registered Program. Participants will receive all of the curriculum and training that will enable you to deliver the selected classes to your own agency as a MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute Registered Program*.

Participants will receive:

  1. An instructor guide
  2. A master copy of the student manual
  3. Digital media to support the course

*What is a Registered Program

The registered course program provides an opportunity for qualified instructors to teach the MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute recognized courses within their organization or mutual aid response area. Instructors may qualify to teach courses under the registered program by successfully completing an MU FRTI Train-the- Trainer course. Qualified instructors may then register a course they teach with the Institute.

Participants who complete a registered course conducted under MU FRTI guidelines will have the contact hours for that course added to their MU FRTI student record and the course will appear on their official transcript.

A Registered Program administrative fee of $350 per class will be assessed.

Description

Every aspect of the modern fire service demands a craftsmanship approach. Every day is a learning day. Being a great fire service instructor deserves the same effort. Beyond the course description, the course objectives, and the simple transfer of information, craftsman instructors want to understand how to get students engaged, enthralled, and learning. Nearly a century of work has been done on how to produce better results. Research demonstrates that the lecture method is among the least effective methods for student performance. Come and learn the teaching techniques that provide students the opportunity to understand firefighting. Do you want to take the information available from this era of firefighting research and have students apply that knowledge to the real world? You must go beyond the lecture method. Learn to be a better instructor. Learn to be a teacher. Be a craftsman instructor. Your students deserve nothing less.
