Florida State Fire Classes
Florida Pump Operator
The Fire Apparatus Pump Operator program is designed to prepare Florida firefighters for service as fire department driver-engineers. Pump operators have an understanding of emergency vehicle operations, fire service hydraulics, fire-related physics and chemistry, and successful relay operations.
To be certified as a Fire Service Apparatus and Pump Operator in the State of Florida, an individual must successfully complete 80 hours of basic certification training for Apparatus and Pump Operators, or have received equivalent training in another state, and pass a state written examination.
Ricky Rescue offers the classes required for certification as Fire Apparatus Pump Operator. Classes may be taken individually or as part of the bundled Pump Operator Series or Pump and Aerial Operator Series.
