Action Training Systems, NVFC Give Away Training

April 3, 2014
Volunteer and mostly volunteer fire departments can apply for a training package to be given away by ATC and the National Volunteer Fire Council in June.

Action Training Systems (ATS) has teamed up with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) to provide 50 online training packages to all-volunteer or mostly-volunteer departments, for a total of nearly $250,000 worth of training.

Through the ATS/NVFC $250K Training Giveaway, eligible departments can apply for a training package that provides 20 department members with free access to Essentials of Fire Fighting online training for one year. The deadline to apply is May 1.

The training giveaway coincides with the 2014 International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week. The theme of this year’s event is “Train Like You Fight,” which emphasizes safety on the training ground and the importance of receiving adequate training to prepare for safe fireground operations.

The 50 winning departments in the ATS/NVFC $250K Training Giveaway will be announced during Safety and Health Week June 15-21. Each of the 50 winning departments will receive a one-year subscription for 20 learners and one administrator to the Essentials of Fire Fighting curriculum via the ATS Online Learning Management System.

This series contains 33 interactive courses, streaming video, and PowerPoints to teach Firefighter I and II skills and prerequisite knowledge.

Essentials of Fire Fighting teaches to the current NFPA 1001 standard and can be used as a training resource to simplify technical knowledge and reinforce training objectives. The department administrator can track the progress of up to 20 students through the program.

To be eligible to apply for the training giveaway, applicants must be from an all-volunteer or mostly-volunteer (over 50 percent) fire department that serves a population of 25,000 or less and is legally organized within one of the 50 U.S. states.
