Here’s a copy of our Fire & EMS Academy curriculum we use for our new members. We bring on a group of volunteers twice per year, January & June, so some of their monthly classes overlap. This training is in addition to State of Ohio Volunteer Firefighter and EMT training classes they also must complete within their 1 year probationary period.
We have found that this process provides better training than our old way, which was checkoffs they went through with their assigned Captain.
Hope this can be helpful for other departments.
