Modern Mentor Webinars

The ISFSI Modern Mentor Webinar Series is hosted once a month with ISFSI members and Subject Matter Experts discussing training topics relevant to today's firefighter. 

Webinar Proposal Guidelines

Please keep in mind that the purpose of the webinar series is to provide up-to-date education on topics that are relevant and pertinent to today's fire service instructor. Proposals that directly promote a business or the sale of products are usually not accepted for the webinar series unless they are particularly compelling and have a strong training component included. 

Quality: We strongly encourage presenters to submit work tailored specifically to our audience (fire service instructors). The ISFSI webinar team will work with the presenter to that the content fits the guidelines outlined here. 

Webinar Types and Formats: 

  • Content Area Experts
  • How-to/Practicals
  • Case Studies
  • Strategic Perspective
  • Quick Drills/Evolutions
  • Training Tips
  • Panel Discussions
  • Podcasts

Length: The length of the webinar should be dependent on the content but should be limited to around 60 minutes. The webinar committee will work with presenters to accommodate the presentation with the appropriate length.

Research: Facts should be well-researched and supported, using the following as suggested resources:

  • Interviews with at least three local sources considered authorities on the topics. Include quotes from them in your article.
  • Journal articles or news stories that support your point. Link to or list these sources so that readers can find out more information.
  • Always use local, real-life situations and people to illustrate your topic.

Deadlines: The ISFSI host a webinar once a month, unless otherwise marketed. Complete proposals must be received at least two months in advance. Submission by the deadline does not guarantee publication. A copy of the final presentation is not due until one week prior to the scheduled session.

Editing: ISFSI works closely with the presenters to refine the content for presentation. In order to maintain the appropriate length of the webinar, ISFSI reserves the right to reject certain submissions or postpone the session to a later date. ISFSI also reserves the right to edit, change or omit certain content, including photographs and graphics, as deemed appropriate by the ISFSI webinar team.

Disclaimer: Opinions expressed in the webinars are those of the contributors and not necessarily of ISFSI, however submissions will not be considered if they do not align with the ISFSI mission and vision.
