STUDY STRATEGIES FOR ALL

STUDY STRATEGY FOR COMPANY OFFICER STUDENT
(LT's OR CAPT's)

The bi-weekly seminars are a great way to begin your study program and become a more knowledgeable member. The seminars cover the latest core topics that overlap all ranks and help you become a more professional firefighter or officer. Be sure to read through the material that we will cover before coming to class.

Our advice at this time for the company officer student is to begin a light reading schedule, a familiarization if you will, utilizing firehouse books and firehouse time. During the holiday months, the best strategy is to not sacrifice "Family and Friends Time" and enjoy the holidays with your family and friends. Then in January, get your own books organized and begin a formal organized reading schedule. When the time is right, we will begin our Company Officer's program that will take you to the finish line and put you in position to achieve your goal.

Fire Tech has compiled the “12 Week Company Officer’s Study Guide” as well as a "Study List" for those members that like to read cover to cover, the Guide or List will show you what you should be reading at this early stage.

 

STUDY STRATEGY FOR BATTALION CHIEF STUDENTS

 

The Battalion Chiefs test is most likely less than 2 years away. Our advice to the Battalion Chief candidates is to begin reading now and use fire house time and gets a couple of hours each tour. Then drop the books and enjoy the rest of the day.  

Fire Tech will most likely begin a Battalion Chief specific program later in 2012, which will focus in on Chief specific topics. This program, when combined with the overlap material from our Company Officers Seminars, will put you in the money on the B.C.’s list.

Fire Tech has compiled the “12 Week Battalion Chief Study Guide” which shows you:

  • The key study topics that must be in your study program
  • Selected topics that should be given extra emphasis

 

REMEMBER, WHEN YOU ARE NOT STUDYING, YOUR COMPETITION IS!
