ND Fire Service Instructor Society

As North Dakota Fire Service Instructors, we are charged with the task of training fire and rescue personnel throughout the state of North Dakota. The North Dakota Fire Service Instructor Society (NDFSIS) has been created to establish a channel of communication between instructors, provide a means of improving the quality of our instructors and a means of sharing information and resources.



1. To promote and assist in the training and education of the North Dakota Fire & Rescue Service.
2. To assist in the development of Fire & Rescue Instructors.
3. Provide and encourage attendance in classes & programs, which will lead to the continuous professional development of North Dakota Fire Service Instructors.
4. Provide designated representatives to professional groups, such as the Certification Advisory Committee, for promoting training and education programs of the Society, while also providing an avenue to receive information on future needs or directions of the Society.
