With 33 years of experience as a professional firefighter, recently retiring as the assistant chief, training division for the Township of Langley Fire Department, Rob Clausen is well positioned to teach other firefighters and fire officers skills that will advance their careers. Add to that more than 20 years as a JIBC sessional instructor, and Rob is a well-regarded teacher and subject matter expert in a number of areas.
Rob has extensive experience in training, suppression and fire investigation. His true passion lies in the Fire Service Instructor I and II courses which he has taught in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and all three of the northern territories.
“Instructing and teaching are some of the most important aspects of the fire service because it ensures that our crews are prepared and ready to deal with the challenges presented to them when the public calls upon us for assistance,” Rob said. “I am always learning new things in my classes and hope that I can fully engage my students in the passion that I have for teaching.”
