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

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.
