Emergency Training Division approved courses are broken down into three distinct sections*:
Part 1 – Preparatory Online Training
Part 2 – Formal 30-Day Online Training
Part 3 – Skills Testing
PART 1 – PREPARATORY Online Training: This section is designed to prepare you for the Formal 30-Day Online Training (Part 2). You will be required to read and study various topics/chapters and take practice quizzes over that material. Students must pass the Syllabus Tests in order to continue to Part 2. You will also begin the process of reviewing any skill work that may be required of you during Part 3: Skills Testing.
PART 2 – FORMAL 30-DAY ONLINE TRAINING: Once you’ve completed the Part 1: Preparatory section (Free online Training) and are ready for the next step, you will need to access to Part 2: Formal 30-Day Online Training, This portion of the course must be completed within 30 days.
Part 2 Completion can be achieved by the participant once an 80% or greater score is achieved in the FINAL TEST.
In addition, each participant must complete the training on an individual basis. If you ask someone else to go through the program for you, you will not learn the information that will be necessary to protect your health and safety. This will render your certificate null and void.
PART 3 – SKILLS TESTING: In order to become fully certified, you will also need to complete a One Day hands-on training program.
The final portion of our Fire Courses requires you to complete the skills testing. Skills must be scheduled within the 2-3 months following completion of the Formal 30-Day Online Training (Part 2). Scheduling is done by emailing Student Services, [email protected]
