The student will be given strategies to succeed as an effective fire service leader. Through a series of discussions, role plays and exercises, the student will acquire the tools necessary to function as an effective supervisor. Additionally, the student will learn the importance of mentoring, coaching, writing and oral communication skills necessary to be a strong fire service leader.
