Effective selection process

Fire and rescue services must identify the knowledge and skills that they require in an incident commander and should consider the most appropriate way of selecting personnel for incident command roles. This should include suitable and sufficient systems to identify individuals for command roles, including a practical assessment of their command skills.

The CFOA Command Training, Assessment and Qualifications Fire and Rescue Service Guidance provides further information that may assist when developing a selection process for incident commanders.
