It is the mission of IAFPD to bring you the best educational opportunities to help you fulfill the duties of your position with your Fire Protection District.
The Essential Trustee Training (formerly called Advanced Trustee Training/ATT), a 12-hour, delivered in 3 parts, is a complete curriculum of the administration duties and legal responsibilities for the Board of Trustees of a Fire Protection District.
Continuing Trustee Education (CTE) (Formerly ATS), are a one-day program held throughout 4 areas of the State during the months of January-March. These sessions bring our members an legal update that address recent legislation, OMA and FOIA requirements along with agency updates from IFSI and OSFM. This program meets the 3-hour "continuing education" requirement in compliance with PA 95-0799.
The Winter Conference brings not only the opportunity to obtain Continuing Education (CE) credit, but also network with other Fire Protection Districts as well as industry partners in a relaxed environment.
The Annual Conference brings education, exhibits, and special events together for a weekend of learning and networking. Educational programs are selected based on the ever changing duties of Fire Protection Districts and their officials, and are offered for not only trustees, but Chiefs and personnel as well. At the conference, you will find ample opportunity to earn Continuing Education credits for those who have previously completed the 3-Part Essential Trustee Training, which is presented based on the needs of our members.
Online Programs. This recently launched educational platform that brings training to you and allows you to earn Continuing Education credits. Whether you need to brush up on material you have gained at previous training sessions, or you would like to earn additional CE, we hope that you will take advantage of this convenient and affordable platform, brought you this year in partnership with the Illinois Fire Sprinkler Coalition.
As always, you may contact the IAFPD office with any suggestions on educational topics, or for more information on any of our educational programming.
