Chief Rufer is one of the Hottest speakers on the conference circuit today. Training planners love Chief Rufer and bring him back year-after-year for his fast-paced, content-rich programs that keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Chief Rufer delivers training to firefighters, company officers, and chiefs, locally, regionally, and nationally. He is a thought leader on a wide range of topics — providing audiences with the tools to become more innovative in their approach to fire ground operations, the design of training programs, and recruiting volunteers.

What makes Chief Rufer unique is the “genuine” factor. Audiences always relate to his experiences, struggles and lessons. But what knocks your socks off is his impeccable delivery. Chief Rufer’s programs combine a down-to-earth attitude with a colorful artistic streak. Comments from audience members such as, “I can’t wait to take this back to my department and drill on it,” “Great class, I learned alot” and, “nice to see a volunteer that cares,” are a testament to his effectiveness and style.

He is the author of HELP Wanted: Volunteer Recruitment and Retention which has helped many departments improve their training and recruitment efforts.

Training Officer Boot Camp – EXCELLENT SEMINAR!

Very informative for rookies to veterans. Instructor engages the class by interacting and role playing. The real life scenarios the instructor has been through bring a realization to the class that tough decisions need to be made on the fire ground. Never stop training or get complacent. I can honestly say, I had fun while learning different ways to look at fire calls. Excellent seminar. Highly recommended. Thank you for your service and coming up to Central WI.

GOOD STUFF, that can be applied immediately – Training Officer Boot Camp

Al does a great job at “keeping it real” for all levels of firefighter services. His ideas are GREAT, and he explains them all very well. I will certainly be passing this on to both of the fire departments that I am a member of. Thanks Al for some good stuff that can be applied immediately.

Excellent as usual!

As he has in the past, Al Rufer brought a no-nonsense, information filled presentation to our department. In a matter of four hours, he took guys that had never been in a leadership postion and made them feel comfortable being stuck in the officers seat. If your department is like ours, any given day, any given firefighter may find themselves in that seat. Knowing the scene will start smoothly and run fine until command shows up is a great feeling. I feel so strongly that every firefighter needs to take the TEN-23 class, that my department will be sponsoring this class for all area FF later this year. I urge everyone to attend and see what a 360 can do for you!
