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.

To purchase books, please contact Linda Adams at or call 515.727.3426
For any questions about the courses, please contact Don Minks at or call 515.727.3424
