March 6-8, 2018 Fayetteville Training Center  Fayetteville, AR 

SW-IAFC Leadership Academy!  Do you want high performance officer in your fire department?

THIS CLASS IS SOLD OUT… PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GO ON THE WAITING LIST OR WOULD LIKE TO HOST A CLASS IN YOUR CITY

This training program is a blended learning environment.  The concept is to begin with a networking opportunity in a small classroom setting. Follow-up with training, mentoring and coaching over the following 4 months.  This not only saves the student and department money but it allows the student to learn at their pace.  And the networking aspect is priceless!

  • When training is combined with coaching, individuals increase their performance by an average of 86% compared to 22% with training alone. (Source: Personnel Management Assoc.)

Get the best leadership training in the Southwest region. Our training program is open to all levels of chief officers, but it’s exclusively designed for officers with 0-4 bugles preparing for a promotion, or those just recently promoted desiring to advance their administrative skills where 90% of an officer’s daily duties begin and end.
