Fire Service Vehicle Operator certificate is designed for engineers and officers of a fire department who, as part of their duties, are responsible for the safe operation of a fire service vehicle during emergency and non-emergency driving. Common driving hazards, pre-trip inspections and driver training content are combined with an AHJ-provided driving portion, leading to OSFM certification. A minimum of a valid Illinois Class "B" non-CDL driver's license is required for the road-testing portion.
