FIREFIGHTER 1 - BLENDED LEARNING  ***Newly Revised Delivery Format*** See complete schedule below & pay particular attention to the location of each date.  CCOB is Cayuga County Office Building and CCFTT is Cayuga County Fire Training Tower.

Combined BEFO and SCBA/IFO (Firefighter 1) – Blended Learning (Internet Based) Course. This course is for the highly motivated, self-directed student with access to high-speed internet who can commit to a very aggressive training schedule in a compressed time format. Students will be expected to read three chapters, complete the respective on-line interactive slide shows and score 70% on three on-line chapter tests each week. Students will be monitored and assisted by an instructor through email and on-line course contact. Corresponding skills instruction and evaluation will occur at a training facility during weeks three, eight and nine. Students must be available to attend a three-hour orientation session, two weekday units at week 3 and a full week of units in week eight and week nine. Final written and skills evaluation will be performed at the end of week nine in person at the training facility. As the initial entry program for firefighting personnel, this combined course introduces firefighting concepts, practices and techniques necessary for the new member to become an interior structural firefighter who can perform under the direct supervision of a company officer. Completion of this course achieves the twenty-one objectives of function 4.2 Interior Firefighters of the OFPC Recommended Best Practices for FD Training Programs (01/15) document.Students must be physically capable of wearing SCBA and possess current medical clearance for SCBA use. Students not possessing this prerequisite will not be allowed to participate for their own safety. A completed “Training Authorization Letter” will meet this requirement.

Students will need the following:

- Proper fitting and serviceable structural PPE

- Functional SCBA w/ spare cylinder and appropriate sized facepiece

- Practice Rope (6-8’ in length, no larger than 1/2” diameter) for knot tying

- Other tools and equipment (forcible entry/hand tools, flashlights, etc.) as training topic requires 

CPR is required for course completion. If the student already possesses this certification then a copy of same can be given to the instructor at orientation. If the student needs the certification, a class will be arranged as instructor availability allows. Students will not receive a Firefighter 1 certificate until proof of completion is provided.
