This course is designed to meet the needs of the fire officer at level and is based on NFPA 1021: Standard for Fire Officer Professional Qualifications (Chapter 6). This course consists of subjects designed to give the officer more knowledge of management and administration so that he/she can make basic evaluations of employee relations and assume a more proactive role in his/her department. This course will also look at powerful trends including political, ethical, legal, and sociological which are likely to continue shaping the fire service, impacting department structures and roles in the community, and altering the demands placed not only on fire service leaders but on the personnel they lead. Department leaders need to navigate changes that include demographic shifts, technological challenges, unforeseen court decisions, economic downturns, political turmoil, higher levels of emergency preparedness, and union-versus-management concerns. This course explains all of these concepts and more to build a solid foundation for aspiring chief officers.

Upon successful completion of the course the student will be able to take the Tennessee Fire Fighting Commission Fire Officer 3 certification exam.
