Unit II Project
Career Path Interview
In order to be prepared to provide protection to your community, you need to have an educated and highly-trained workforce ready to handle any emergency that arises in today’s volatile environment.
In this assignment, you are to interview your training officer or fire chief, and discuss the training and educational skills and abilities one needs to progress through the ranks in your department. If you are not presently employed in the fire service, reach out to your local fire department and speak to them. When you have completed the interview, plot what you have learned on a model like the one on page 59 of the textbook for both training/certifications and educational requirements. Then, compare and contrast your model with the National Professional Development Model in a one-page essay to include your desired career path in both areas.
