Benefits of Membership
The AFTOA endeavours to help connect, develop, and support fire training officers and instructors so they may best provide training for their organization and its members.
Through our membership services, we strive to:
To make available technical information, resources and guidance with the goal of improving education province wide
To promote, inform and advise on uniform training practices for the Fire Service
To encourage the development of consistent fire service performance standards
To study, advise or advocate on areas of mutual interest to the Fire Service, particularly in the field of training
To act as liaison on training matters with other associations, in keeping with the best interest of the Province and the regions served
We are continually developing valuable services for you and your municipality through educational directives, inventive and effective communications, networking opportunities, peer and research support, discounts on services through industry members/partners and a voice to influence political decisions and policies that impact the fire service.
