Professional Fulfillment Framework: ISFSI recognizes that one can achieve professional satisfaction and fulfillment in any position or stage of employment within the Professional Development Matrix. The Matrix assumes “free movement,” with many points of entry and intersections. Each individual will chart their own course, with the Matrix available as a guide to recommend education, experience, competencies, and activities to help you navigate the profession and achieve your maximum potential and desired professional outcomes.
Organizations can utilize the matrix to redefine roles and expectations of current and future employees as well as incorporate accomplishments and competencies into staff training and development offerings.
Individuals can utilize the matrix as a roadmap for advancement within the fire service and a template for professional growth and development.
Academies can utilize the matrix to structure educational offerings and provide networking opportunities customized to and highlighting elements of the professional fulfillment framework.
The ISFSI Professional Development Matrix was built according to the NFPA Professional Qualifications Standards. Please reference your state, local, and departmental guidelines and policies for career advancement steps.
