    hey all,
    I'm considering adding a live fire component to my HFS Class and wanted to note on the Certificate that the class included such.

    What's the typical wording used to accomplish this? I don't recall this being discussed in my Instructor material.

    Thanks!

    The extra writing on the certificate has no legal standing. Best to keep the cert as intended and write a separate latter you can give out with the cert.

    I respectfully disagree.

    I write "with live fire" on the cert. Other instructors use a rubber stamp. No issues with MSP on my report or with any chiefs/LOs that have received my certs.
