The 4th edition of Fire and Emergency Services Company Officer reflects not only changes in the NFPA 1021, Standard for Fire Officer Professional Qualifications but also in the IFSTA approach to manual development. Like the previously published Fire and Emergency Services Instructor (7th edition) manual, Company Officer (4th edition) is divided into two parts, each based on the appropriate Fire Officer Levels I and II. This division makes it easier for the student to read and the instructor to teach. Appendices, glossary, and a list of suggested readings are also parts of the new manual. Visually, the new manual contains changes in the chapter title pages. Divider pages introduce each chapter with a list of the NFPA job-performance requirement (JPR) numbers addressed in the chapter, learning objectives, and a list of chapter contents. Developed in conjunction with the manual is a customizable curriculum reproduced on CD-ROM. A lesson plan based on each chapter permits the instructor to expand or modify the lessons to meet local requirements. PowerPoint® presentations are designed to permit illustrations to be added or replaced with local images. Skills sheets are also included as well as lesson quizzes and tests. An Instructor Resource kit is also available, containing a copy of the manual, curriculum, student study guide, and clip art on CD-ROM, and a blank CD-ROM disc to store the locally customized curriculum.

    Just finished reviewing this fine command development manual for a class I am teaching and thought it was an excellent resource. I am very impressed with the content and scope of the manual. i have written it into the course syllabus.
