    Default Central IL FFII class?

    Any dept in central IL putting on a Firefighter II class that they would be willing to let a student from another dept in to? I have a guy I need to get in to a class ASAP and his career will not allow an academy (M-F classes) setting. We are near Peoria and he is willing to drive up to an hour from home. Any help would be appreciated!

    The Morton Fire Department has started putting on regular "online hybrid" FFII classes. I just finished it with them, and it's a great way to do it. Coursework is done on your own time, there is an online chat session once a week to substitute for classroom sessions, and then you meet roughly every other week on a Wednesday night for the practical evolutions. They just started a class in August that's going on now, so the next one probably won't be until the spring. I think they intend to do it twice a year (start in spring and fall).

    See if you can still get in on the FF2 online at U of I. We had our first online chat tonight. I would give them a call. We will have all modules completed online by may of 2009. there is a few weeks between each module.

    Can you start that online U of I FF II at any module? I am looking at starting in January, but they are on Module B already.
