Instructor Information

To standardize programs on a statewide basis, Fire Service Technology (FST) uses specific guidelines for defining and qualifying FST instructors. FST State Instructors, Proctors, and Evaluators are College of Eastern Idaho contract employees. In-House Instructors are not considered adjunct faculty of College of Eastern Idaho and are not eligible to receive reimbursement from FST. They are authorized to deliver FST approved training to their assigned agency only. For more information on payroll if you are a newly appointed statewide instructor contact FST.

To become a FST Instructor, you must fill out an application through the College of Eastern Idaho's Human Resource department. You can find the information at under Fire Services Instructor/Evaluator.
