JIBC - Resuming New Course Registrations

January 14, 2021

RE: Resuming new course registrations for Exterior, Interior and Full Service firefighter courses

The JIBC Fire & Safety Division (FSD) is resuming new course registrations in its Exterior, Interior, and Full Service Fire Fighter Operations courses after completing a number of updates.

The course updates included:

•Updating course materials to align with the 2019 edition of the NFPA 1001 Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualification, and the latest B.C. Fire Service Minimum Training Standards;

•Upgrading course content to the fourth edition of the Jones & Bartlett Fundamentals of Fire Fighter Skillstextbook;

•Streamlining the course registration form.

Due to these updates, course content may look different with necessary adjustments to course topics aligned with the latest standards and textbook.

Students who started a course from July 2020 onwards who have yet to complete their course will continue to have access. They will, however, need to receive a new textbook code, which will be provided by FSD once they are received from Jones & Bartlett.

Thank you for your patience and support as we work to continually improve our programming to meet the training needs of the fire service in B.C.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at vocationalfftc@jibc.ca.
