Description

NFA logoThe course focus is on the NFPA four-step method of Preparation, Presentation, Application, and Testing (Evaluation) and is directed toward company officers, and/or those with responsibilities for training.

Preparation - Focuses on adults as learners, their needs, motivation and environment. Additional focus is placed on lesson plans and training objectives. These elements are targeted to prepare the instructor to teach, and prepare the student to learn.

Presentation - Focuses on presentation Methods, Aids, and Techniques. In the presentation step, each skill or concept is carefully explained, and the student is shown how to perform it.
