Goals of the Education Committee
History & Rational:
To preserve the integrity of the fire service, it must achieve recognition as a profession. Too often manipulative training aspects of fire suppression have overshadowed the need for a recognized professional education program for the expanding field of fire protection.
Fire Services Education, Training and Professional Development
The Education & Training Committee will work to establish collaborative partnerships with Educational and Training related organizations in order to expand and enhance professional development opportunities for CSFA members and the California fire service including, but not limited to: the Fire Service Training Institute (FSTI), California Community Colleges, California Public and Private Colleges/Universities, the California Fire Technology Directors Association (CFTDA), the California Fire Chiefs' Training Officers Association, California State Fire Training, and the National Fire Academy.
