“I have taken training personally and I have sent several of my firefighters to Chief Fowler for various training courses. His professionalism, knowledge and experience combined with his natural tact for adult learning put him at the top of my list when seeking premium fire service training. He has an ability to help students be successful in achieving their certification while providing solid “real-world” education to complement the process!”
-Brandon LeMay, Assistant Chief – South Bay Fire Department, Olympia, WA
“I am a chief officer that was hired from out of state. When I attempted to convert my certifications into the IFSAC system, I was faced with the reality that I would have to either re-take all of the courses, or challenge the IFSAC exams. Since I had no experience with IFSAC, I decided that I should probably take the first couple of courses, which led me to Chief Fowler's classes. Marty made the class and testing process understandable and achievable. It has set me on the path of being able to challenge the subsequent certifications and obtain all of my IFSAC certifications. I feel it is important to have the same certifications as the personnel I lead.”
