Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator-Aerial

This 36-hour course prepares the participant to be able to perform aerial fire apparatus driving, positioning, operating and testing functions at a minimum nationally recognized level.

The targeted audience is individuals who have completed the training required to meet the Fire Fighter I JPRs of NFPA 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Chapter 3, and desire, or are required, to increase their knowledge and skill set to progress to the fire apparatus driver/operator-aerial level.

This course is designed to provide the Driver/Operator-Aerial candidate with the information needed to meet the job performance requirements (JPRs) in National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1002, Standard for Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications, Chapter 4. The course curriculum is taken from the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA) Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 2nd Edition.

A written and practical skills certification exam is available to participants who successfully complete this course. A participant who completes this course and wishes to be certified has two years from the completion of the course to take the exams. Participants who successfully pass the certification exams will receive a State of Wisconsin Certificate with an IFSAC (International Fire Service Accreditation Congress) seal which can be accepted by other IFSAC accredited states or entities.
