Fire Officer Development

The objective of the Officer Development Program is to deliver a high quality Fire Officer training and certification program for current and future fire officers that exceeds national and state standards as well as the expectations of the student, departments, and the community as a whole.

The Officer Development Program is designed to meet the needs of the firefighter with a goal of promotion, the fire officer wanting to excel in knowledge and skills, and the fire officer wanting to promote to higher levels of management and administration.

The program also goes well beyond the minimum requirements for Fire Officer Certification levels I, II, and III, but also meets the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control requirements for Fire Officer certifications, Colorado metropolitan Certification Board standards (Pro Board), and all NFPA 1021 Standards for Fire Officer Professional Qualifications (guideline).
