This premiere conference rotates around North America annually with a dedicated focus on INSTRUCTOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. It provides instructors a quality experience in a small intimate conference setting. Attendees are challenged academically and are provided a chance to network amongst their peers. No attention to details is left unturned. Each attendee goes home with all the resources and tools they need to be the best instructor possible.



"The ISFSI Instructor Development Conference was an excellent use of my time! In general I rate a conference a success if 60% of the content is of benefit to my career development. In this case I can say 100% of the programs delivered relevant material and I will go back to my department a stronger instructor with the knowledge I gained from this conference."

Seth Barker, Captain/Training Officer; Big Sky Fire Department

"It is obvious the overwhelming theme by all instructors was they were here to serve. Every instructor that presented made available all of his training materials, powerpoints and instructor notes for all students. It was their goal to provide us information to take back to our own department. Passion oozed from the pours of the instructors like lava seeping out of Mount Kilauea."

Gil Osmer, Captain; Gwinnett Fire Academy
