IFSTA NEW Editions Streamline Driver/Operator Training
The new editions of these bestselling IFSTA fire apparatus driver/operator training materials mark a new approach to training driver/operators. Previously, IFSTA published two separate manuals with student and instructor support materials: Pumping Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook. Fire departments with both types of apparatus needed two manuals, two curriculum and driver/operator trainees needed two exam preps to study for tests.
The release of the 3rd edition of these manuals streamlines the IFSTA training resources. The Pumping Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition covers pumping apparatus only, the second book in the pair, Pumping and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition contains the same 15 chapters as the pumping apparatus textbook, plus an additional 5 chapters relevant to aerial apparatus. Personnel on departments that operate both types of apparatus now only need one manual and one curriculum for training. Students only need one exam prep to prepare for testing. If a fire department does not use aerial apparatus, they use the Pumping Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition and omit the aerial sections of the curriculum and exam prep which include all 20 chapters.
Chapters 2 and 3 are especially beneficial for all driver/operators: Inspection and Maintenance and Safety and Operating Emergency Vehicles.
Pumping and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition
IFSTA full featured eBooks meet the needs of the fire and emergency responder who is fully connected and immersed in the capability of mobile devices to communicate, socialize, and learn.
IFSTA eBooks include features to enhance learning:
Intended to prepare the student for end of course tests and written portions of certification exams, this self-study includes 953 questions from all 20 chapters of Pumping and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition. Page referenced for correct answers in Pumping and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition.
This interactive, digital version of the print Exam Prep is designed as a self-study tool to allow students to review content on a chapter-by-chapter basis with the intent to prepare for comprehensive assessments like certification or promotional exams. However, it is much more than a replica of the print version. The Exam Prep Flash Drive is a Windows based application that includes the same 953 questions in the print version. The questions are divided by chapter. The flash drive allows the user to select all the questions for a particular chapter or to select a subset of questions based upon a page range that the user selects. If a subset is selected, the user can then limit the questions to a particular part of a chapter. The questions are automatically graded, and the program tracks correct and incorrect responses for the user. Each question includes the page reference where the correct answer is located in Pumping and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition. After completing a section of questions in the Exam Prep, all incorrect responses are displayed so that the user can print a fully referenced custom study plan based upon areas in which they missed questions. The Exam Prep Flash Drive was formerly referred to as the Self-Study Guide Flash Drive.
