Firefighter II Francisco O. Iginoef completed the International Public Safety Leadership and Ethics Institute and Phi Theta Kappa Facilitator Certification held at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Emergency Training Center in Emmetsburg, Maryland last June 26.
The training is based on IPSLEI’s and PTK’s award winning ethical leadership development curriculum. The dynamic and unique curriculum uses a humanities approach to assist in simplifying the complexities of leadership in a multifaceted inter-dependent world.
Iginoef, from the Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services, gained insight and experience in the adult learning processes through use of the Socratic method of dialogue, experiential activities, case study methodology, and the value of transformational reflection as a means to personal and organizational leadership development.
Iginoef’s participation in this training demonstrates the CNMI Department of Fire and EMS’s commitment and supports in enhancing the training and skills of its personnel to meeting or exceeding recognized national standards, policies and procedures.
In October 2015, Iginoef completed the Pro-Board Instructor Certification in Guam. The Pro Board Instructor certification expands his teaching credentials and skills in the wider field of Fire Operations. Iginoef will be team teaching an upcoming Pro Board Fire Inspector 1 class with Guam Fire Captain Ronald Castro. (PR)
