Where will the course take place?
Our courses are all pre-recorded and conducted online. We deliver all course material through a web browser on desktop or mobile device. We think this is great for you because it means you can work on the course material anytime and anyplace. Best of all, you do not need to install special software or hardware.
Do you have a physical in-classroom training?
Not at the moment and not for the foreseeable future. Our mission is to make quality fire protection education accessible to anyone, and we feel the best way is to share our courses online. Now anyone with a decent internet connection can learn with us, wherever you are and you don’t have to purchase an expensive plane ticket or miss days at work.
What format are our courses in?
The course will be a multimedia, interactive format, best viewed on desktop or a mobile device in landscape format. The course will be hosted on an online learning management system so that you can track and save your progress and come back to it at any time. Each course is accompanied by quizzes, graded assessments and cheat sheets. Our "online course' is designed to be a complete environment for learning and includes an internal discussion forum where you can raise any questions you have about course content.
