From rookie to chief, outstanding leaders in the fire services community receive training through development programs and the annual Leadership Symposium. A development capstone program, the Fire Service Chief Executive Officer Program is designed for executives within the fire service with modules taught by professors from the Mays Business School. At the annual Leadership Symposium, fire and EMS service leaders receive up-to-date information on leadership, management, safety, budgeting and other topics through sessions that meet continuing education requirements for Texas fire officer and EMS personnel. For those just starting out, the Texas Fire Officer Training Program utilizes the Fire Officer I, II, III, & IV courses, which meet NFPA 1021 training and certification requirements. After successfully learning to meet the challenges faced by both the Company and Command Officer, candidates are eligible for Pro Board NFPA 1021 testing and certification.
All students participating in training at TEEX Brayton Fire Training Field are required to follow all guidelines in the
Student Safety Manual for the fire field.
