SAMPLE Fire Charter Course Materials – New Documents Effective January 1, 2019

Note: The Division of EMS, with advice and counsel of the Firefighter & Fire Safety Inspector Training Subcommittee, has modified the firefighter course packets to provide for a uniform, one-stop-shop for firefighter training course information (General Course Information, Course Admission Requirements, Qualifications for Certification, Course Objectives, and Recommended Hours Guides), as well as to streamline the certification process for out-of-state applicants (reciprocity). Only the hours guide format has changed, shifting from a NFPA 1001-centric format to a format organized by course topic. General course information, course admission requirements, qualifications for certification, and course objectives have not changed. Use of the new packets will be effective with courses starting on or after January 1, 2019. The forms will replace EMS 0209, EMS 0207, EMS 0204, EMS 0208, and EMS 0203. Use of the new forms will be required effective with courses starting on or after January 1, 2019. Sample versions of the revised forms, watermarked "SAMPLE" until January 1, 2019, can be accessed via the following links:
