If you are not currently a JIBC evaluator but wish to become certified to conduct evaluations on behalf of the FSD, evaluation will consist of both cognitive and practical components. To assess the degree to which you have absorbed the knowledge-based content you will be required to write a 40-question multiple-choice written exam and score a grade of 75% or higher. This exam will be both proctored and timed.

You may also be required to conduct a practical skills evaluation, which must be overseen and assessed by FSD staff or a proctor specifically approved by the FSD for this purpose.

You will be allowed one re-write if necessary and your grade is above 60% on your first attempt. If you are unsuccessful, in achieving 60% on your first attempt or 75% on your second attempt, you will be required to wait six months before re-taking the course and re-attempting your evaluation(s).

The following documentation should be submitted with your application:

  • CV or Resume showing proof of Fire Service experience (min. of 5 years) and Subject Matter Expertise (to at least a level higher than you are applying to evaluate)
  • Proof of NFPA 1041 Fire Service Instructor I
  • Proof of a minimum of 3 years teaching or instructional experience
  • Letter of support and reference from your fire department
