About the Conference


The Missouri Emergency Services Instructor Conference is for those preparing and presenting training programs for emergency services personnel, and public fire education. 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 Train-the-Trainer Programs


The Train-the-Trainer classes 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 can be waived) 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. 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.

Yak! Leadership: Knowing Isn't Always Enough

Yak! Leadership

Instructor:

Erick Adams,
Captain, Summerville (SC) Fire and Rescue

Jake Evans,
Chief of Training, Summerville (SC) Fire and Rescue

CEU:

DFS 4-Instructor

Description:

The YAK Leadership class is a dynamic class which motivates and educates. It begins with a motivational message followed by a leadership class. Most leadership presentations tell you which traits are important, define the traits, and even tell you why they are important. Unfortunately, it stops there. They never complete the training and teach how to change. If you want a simple, systematic plan to actually change yourself to obtain these character traits, “YAK! Leadership” is the class you’re looking for.
