Indiana Volunteer Workforce Solutions presents a 3 hour online course for volunteer fire officers to learn how to lead and develop volunteers within their departments . The course is divided into micro-learning events (10-15 minutes/each) created to provide volunteers with valuable training from experienced subject matter experts who manage successful fire services.

This course will:

  • teach such lessons as how to run the business of a fire department, how to motivate others, and time management  

  • assist in easing the time burden placed on the volunteer fire officer candidate

  • understand the various roles of the fire officer in the unique environment of the volunteer or combination department and allow for upward mobility within officer ranks.    

This comprehensive online course, curriculum based on national best practices, is a prerequisite to a 16-hours in-person training for volunteer and combination department firefighters.
