IFSTA now offers their high-quality teaching materials in all-inclusive kits and the ability to easily customize the curriculum at any time — all at an affordable price. Introducing IFSTA Instructor Resource Kits. Everything instructors need to teach courses that use IFSTA manuals as their primary text.
The HazMat for First Responders 3rd edition Instructor Resource Kit provides the resources needed to teach courses that use the HazMat for First Responders 3rd edition manual.
The kit includes:
A HazMat for First Responders 3rd edition manual
A customizable curriculum on CD-ROM for HazMat for First Responders 3rd edition
A HazMat for First Responders 3rd edition study guide on CD-ROM
A blank CD-ROM to save customized materials
To satisfy local requirements and to adjust to the amount of time available for instruction, instructors may want to customize the curriculum materials. To facilitate customization, the materials have been developed with Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. To use the curriculum on CD-ROM, insert the disc into the CD drive on the computer and the main menu screen will appear. If instructors would like to customize the curriculum to meet local needs, they can copy the lesson outline, PowerPoint, and test files to their computer. Once modified, the curriculum can be saved to the blank CD-ROM included in the kit.
The customizable curriculum on CD-ROM follows the structure of the manual. While each IFSTA curriculum may differ slightly with the topic, the basic instructor materials consist of the following components:
Lesson Quiz and Answers
Written Test and Answers
Assignment Sheets and Answers
PowerPoint® Slide Presentations
The study guide on CD-ROM included in the kit is an electronic version of the IFSTA printed study guide and consists of questions in a multiple-choice format, which is the format used for many civil service and certification exams. The program provides students immediate feedback on answers and also tracks the results of each session as a record of progress. Each time the student goes through the program, the questions are rearranged randomly so each session is different.
The clip art CD-ROM in the kit consists of the artwork and photographs used in the IFSTA manual – which is also a part of the Instructor Resource Kit. All images are in numerical order by chapter. The images on the CD-ROM are intended for on-screen use only (computer monitor or projection) and are at screen resolution (72 dpi). The artwork
and photographs on the CD-ROM are suitable for insertion into PowerPoint® slide presentations.
