NFPA 1002 Standard Change
Curriculum for Emergency Vehicle Driver, Fire Apparatus Operator: Pumper, Fire Apparatus Operator: Aerial, Fire Apparatus Operator: Mobile Water Supply, and Fire Apparatus Operator: Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting are all based on NFPA 1002 Standard for Fire Apparatus Driver/Operator Professional Qualifications, which has recently completed an update (2017 edition). The Alabama Fire College (AFC) has completed the revision of the curriculum that was precipitated by this update and has implemented it beginning November 1, 2018. All FAO classes scheduled after that date will be instructed and tested using the updated curriculum, except for those already approved and scheduled in our database. Each instructor will also be required to complete an instructor update on AFC Online available soon through AFC’s website.  

Also, be aware that the textbook for EVD, FAO: Pumper, FAO: Mobile Water Supply and FAO: Aerial is IFSTA’s, Pumping and Aerial Apparatus Driver/Operator Handbook, 3rd Edition and has not changed. There has been an addition of NFPA 1002 (2017) firefighter skills update to the textbook currently available. FAO: Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting textbook has no changes and is currently IFSTA’s, Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting, 6th Edition.
