For training officers:

  • Deliver in-person training to groups of students.
  • Efficiently manage your department’s performance through robust tools.
  • Integrate with other learning platforms.

For firefighters:

  • Learn anywhere, anytime through quick, bite-sized lessons. 
  • Trust that the courses are based on national standards.
  • Get course recommendations based on your role and experience.
  • Jump to specific content using integrated links.
  • Follow custom learning pathways with certifications

To date, the FSA has launched over 30 science-based courses on topics including fire dynamics, firefighting tactics, and firefighter health. The FSA currently has more than 110,000 registered users, representing 25% of U.S. fire departments. Users have completed over 350,000 training courses. The recent updates represent a significant milestone in our commitment to providing first-class, evidence-based fire safety training.
