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 be of benefit to you.
Pre-Conference 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:
- Instructor Guide
- A master copy of the Student Manual
- CD-ROM with PowerPoint presentation
*What is a Registered Program
The registered course program provides an opportunity for state certified instructors to teach the MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute courses within their organization. Certified fire service instructors may qualify to teach courses under the registered program by successfully completing an MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute’s Train-the-Trainer course. Qualified instructors may then register a course they teach within their own organization with the Institute.
Students 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 $350.00 per class may be covered by state and federal contracts and grants. Departments are responsible for any student manual costs, if applicable.
Registered Program Requirements:
- Instructors must hold and maintain certification by the Missouri Division of Fire Safety at the minimum level of Fire Service Instructor I in order to participate. (If you are not affiliated with a Missouri Fire Department, this requirement can be waived)
- Certified instructors must successfully complete the MU FRTI Train-the Trainer for the registered course.
- The course must be taught as designed using instructor and student materials and teaching aids obtained from MU FRTI.
- Students must complete official MU FRTI registration forms.
- Tests, if applicable, must be administered under MU FRTI guidelines.
- MU FRTI course evaluations must be completed by each student
A general session will kick-off the conference on Saturday morning, October 12th at 8:00 a.m. The Instructor of the year award will be presented to an outstanding MU FRTI Adjunct Instructor. In addition, you will hear program updates from MU FRTI and the Missouri Division of Fire Safety, as well as keynote presentations of interest to instructors.
