An integral part of education and professional development are both practical and theoretical classes. The analysis of the content of curriculums shows that practical classes account for about 72% of the total number of hours devoted to educate warrant officers of the State Fire Service attending a full-time course, and about 63% of hours devoted to educate non-commissioned officers of the State Fire Service.
The content of curriculums necessitates the use of practical teaching methods, adjusting the conditions and schedule of classes to the actual situation. The aim of classes is to stimulate activity and independent thinking, the ability to combine scientific knowledge with the practice in functioning of rescue and firefighting units, including the ability to carry out rescue and firefighting operations. Providing the opportunity to implement the above-mentioned goals is of concern to the management and teaching staff of the School.
The school training ground, laboratories and lecture halls are equipped with modern training stands, teaching aids, technical and information analysis media. It needs to be emphasized that many training stands, resources and teaching aids were made by students as practical part of their theses and term papers. Practical exercises in each subject are carried out in the laboratories and on the training ground. Theoretical study is conducted in 15 lecture halls equipped with modern audiovisual equipment, resources and teaching aids. Lectures for students are held in an assembly hall, which is equipped with modern audiovisual equipment and simultaneous interpretation system.
Practical exercises in each subject are conducted in the following laboratories:
•Laboratory of fire safety technical systems,
•Laboratory of building safety,
•Laboratory for respiratory protective equipment,
•Laboratory of physics and chemistry of combustion and extinguishing agents,
•Laboratory of fire prevention in electrical power engineering,
