Advanced-Level Courses

Instructor, Fire Officer, and Inspector


The Fire Service Training Bureau offers several advanced-level courses per year, depending on requests by fire departments to host them. In the past, the Instructor, Fire Officer, and Inspector courses were funded through an NFA Grant, which allowed us to offer them free of charge. However, that grant is no longer available as a resource so to offset the costs of these programs we are asking that each participant be responsible for the cost of the manual.

The price of the Jones & Bartlett "Fire and Emergency Services Instructor" 3rd edition, is currently $61.00 (plus shipping), and the Jones & Bartlett "Fire Officer" 3rd edition is currently $67.00 (plus shipping). This price reflects a discount of 35% off of the list price. To order books, please contact Linda Adams at 515.727.3426 or adams@dps.state.ia.us


Special Instructions:

If you are interested in hosting or would like to request an advanced-level course, please contact Bureau Chief, John Kraemer by email at kraemer@dps.state.ia.us or phone at 515.727.3426.
