When ITF was first established, the company’s first training mission came in the form of a donation to the Jamaica Fire Brigade. The training was so substantial and so instrumental in making the difference for so many JFB firefighters that the then Commissioner Frederick Whyte, made sure to budget for additional training that same year. Below is a partial list of training contracts that ITF has garnered during the past 18 years. All IFTF/ITF instructors are certified instructors.
