This 4-day course introduces the position of Fire Apparatus Engineer to OCFA personnel wishing to promote out of the rank of Firefighter. Instruction includes basic apparatus operations, inspection and maintenance, hydraulics, and an overview of the FAE position. Classes must be taken sequentially, but personnel who missed attending a prior day may sign up for the missing day. First preference will be given to prospective FAE candidates, with second preference given to prospective FC candidates. This course (or CSFM Driver/Operator 1A/1B) is required to promote to both FAE and FC. At this time, instruction for these classes is classroom based with some manipulative demonstrations.
