What is “Challenge by Choice”?

This means that if at any point, you are unable to complete a given task due to fear or physical limitations, you simply have to inform your Instructor that you prefer to observe the skill being demonstrated, rather than attempting it yourself. Valuable information can be obtained through observation of skills being performed by a qualified Instructor.

However, if you are unable to complete sufficient number of key skills, your certification may be downgraded to a lower level. Rather than "pass or fail", you still walk away with a certification that attests to your personal abilities. The training record provided to each participant should then form the basis of discussions with your supervisor to determine the kind of work you are best suited to, and any limitations you may have.

For those who wish to have a third party endorsement of their individual abilities against set criteria, we can host a professional qualification evaluation through a partnership with North Vancouver Fire Rescue, a ProBoard Accredited testing agency. This evaluation test candidates against the complete NFPA 1006 Standard and the resulting certification is a prestigious endorsement of individual capabitlies.
