Why are some of your textbooks different than some of the other institutions' required textbooks?
At Frontline Fire Training Institute, we make every attempt to align our textbook selection with that of the Florida State Fire College. However, through our curriculum development and materials vetting process, we have found that our selected textbooks offer the students a more streamlined path through the required course curriculum than do others. We want to ensure that our students are thoroughly prepared for the coursework, and we have aligned our textbooks to complement our teaching methodology and enhance the student learning experience in the online learning environment. Training institutions are able to select the textbooks of their choice, and are not required to match those used by the Fire College.
