11 Programmatic Requirements and Information: 1. You must have COFT Intermediate Firefighter to be eligible to enter the COFT Officer program 2. The officer program is progressive. Where there are opportunities for reciprocity with degree and certification programs, one cannot skip levels and laterally enter at a higher level. Where course requirements are met through reciprocity, the student does not have to repeat those courses/hours at that particular level. If a student through other approved sources (eg certification, degree studies) meets all the required courses for a particular level, he/she must also meet the required number of hours of electives from the approved course list. 3. The required elective hours for any specific level must be met through two or more courses. 4. Higher education institutions may submit proposed reciprocity agreements for consideration by the Council upon recommendation by the Executive Director to provide for 5-Level Officer credit through reciprocity for higher education courses. This in no way limits such institutions from offering college credit for training courses. Individuals may submit requests for reciprocity to the Executive Director on an individual basis outlining the specifics of the curriculum, and substantive justification (e.g. particular NFPA JPR s, higher education accredited programmatic coursework/classes, FESHE approved course, etc.) for reciprocity. 5. Equivalency is allowed and supported. Chiefs as the authority having jurisdiction may offer substitute courses that offer a better fit or alternative for their particular department. For example, a local Technical Education Center may offer a Fire Officer I course that is based on NFPA 1021, but does not seek IFSAC/ProBoard certification. 6. All requests for equivalency must be submitted to the COFT Executive Director, and must be in written form outlining the specifics of the curriculum, and substantive justification (e.g. particular NFPA JPR s, NFA provided course, FESHE approved course, etc.) for equivalency. Denial by the Director must include substantive justification including requirements that must be made for course approval. Appeals for denial may be made to the Council as a whole for consideration at their next regularly scheduled meeting. 7. Some courses will require specific agency offerings (e.g. NFA, Public Agency Training Council, etc.). Every effort should be made by training providers (including approved 10

12 equivalency courses) to provide hand offs for alternative delivery (e.g. local, distance, multiple agencies deliveries). 8. Every effort should be made by training providers to develop and encourage flexible delivery options to accommodate volunteers and minimize travel related costs (e.g. weekend delivery, online courses, handoff courses). 9. The most current edition of the NFPA 1021 Standard for Fire Officer Professional Qualifications will be referenced to determine equivalency, reciprocity, and an alternative method for Fire Officer certification and/or college credit. 10. An individual may complete all five levels without college credit or a degree; however for those who do have credit including up to a degree, they are rewarded. For example, course work in higher education may meet the requirements for required/elective courses in the COFT levels. In these cases, course will not have to be repeated in order to earn COFT approval. Similarly, those without degrees may successfully complete the Executive level through the OK-EFOLP or Fire Officer IV certification, while those with bachelor degrees and NFA-EFO or a Masters Degree may accomplish the same. 11. Other courses/topics that are not specifically covered may be offered for equivalency. Examples might include Labor/Management Relations; Health and Fitness; Strategic Planning; Emergency Management; Research Methods, Resources, and Statistics; Personal and Professional Development; other as best determined by the Fire Chief as the AHJ. 12. COFT facilitate a consortium of representatives of Oklahoma college/university fire service degree providers to consider, address, and make recommendations to the Council on higher education issues, programs, cooperative ventures, interrelationships (eg reciprocity), federal initiatives (eg FESHE), etc. 13. Consistent with the Council s directive for active solicitation for information, and broad involvement and input, notice will be provided through the Council members, other fire service and related organizations, and on the COFT web site as to TTF and Council deliberations and discussions in reference to review and any possible changes/updates to the 5-level Officer Program, including any subsequent meeting(s) and/or decision making. 11
