Officer Development Program (ODP)


The IAFC's Officer Development Program (ODP) prepares officers at specific levels for future career advancement while giving them the leadership skills to excel in their current position. All seven levels of ODP are offered each year at FRI and we offer various levels regionally throughout the year.

The program is designed to meet the job performance requirements outlined in NFPA 1021 and follows leadership standards published by the IAFC in the Officer Development Handbook. Check out the learning objectives for each level of the Officer Development Program below.
