Upcoming Training Opportunities
Kentucky Fire Commission Virtual Training Announcement
FROM: Ericka Adams Cole - Kentucky Fire Commission
Due to complexities surrounding the COVID-19 situation, the Kentucky Fire Commission and State Fire Rescue Training have made amendments to the methods we are delivering training to fire departments. Our face-to-face training has ceased and moved to a virtual learning platform for the foreseeable future.
In efforts to create a list of training available to Kentucky firefighters across the state, the Fire Commission will be posting virtual training sessions on its Google Calendar. This calendar can be accessed directly through the link below:
SFRT virtual training may also be accessed through visiting the Fire Commission Website’s, clicking on the News & Events section, and then selecting the Upcoming Events tab. This course list will be updated on a regular basis as trainings are scheduled.
Class information and instructions/links for logging in to the class will be available in the body of the event and are visible after clicking on the event link.
All participants will need a device with a camera (Computer, iPad, Tablet, Phone). Roll will be taken at the beginning of the class, at the return of any breaks and at the end of class. An assistant instructor will monitor all students during the class to ensure participation. Training sheets will be sent by the SFRT area office to the email address provided upon class sign in.
Virtual training differs from online training, as virtual training is done in real time rather than with course material that has been previously published online and can be accessed 24/7. Therefore, those firefighters working toward their initial certifications will have hours attained during virtual training sessions count toward their 150- and 400-hour certificates.
Note that virtual training sessions will adhere to the same KCTCS/Kentucky Fire Commission core values and academic policies as face-to-face classes. Please review the attached statement prior to participation in the virtual training.
If your department would like to schedule virtual training, please contact your local SFRT area office. If you have questions about a particular virtual learning class, please reach out to the host SFRT area office.
