BASIC FIRE FIGHTING COURSE
This course is designed to give you the knowledge it will take to fight incipient fires or fires that are in the beginning stage. The course is based on standards developed for your protection by the National Fire Protection Association and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
In order to complete the course on incipient fire fighting, you will also need to learn the skills required when using portable fire extinguishers and low volume hose lines. Emergency Response Solutions at the Emergency Training Division can schedule the hands-on portion of this program with other training providers. The hands-on portion of the program should focus on the following skills:
- Using an Incident Action Plan
- Hydrant Operations
- Portable Extinguisher Fire Attack
- Low Volume Hose Line Fire Attack
Emergency Training Division approved courses are broken down into three distinct sections*:
Part 1 – Preparatory Online Training
Part 2 – Formal 30-Day Online Training
Part 3 – Skills Testing
PART 1 – PREPARATORY Online Training: This section is designed to prepare you for the Formal 30-Day Online Training (Part 2). You will be required to read and study various topics/chapters and take practice quizzes over that material. Students must pass the Syllabus Tests in order to continue to Part 2. You will also begin the process of reviewing any skill work that may be required of you during Part 3: Skills Testing.
PART 2 – FORMAL 30-DAY ONLINE TRAINING: Once you’ve completed the Part 1: Preparatory section (Free online Training) and are ready for the next step, you will need to access to Part 2: Formal 30-Day Online Training Click on Basic Fire Fighting Course (PART 2) This portion of the course must be completed within 30 days.
Part 2 Completion can be achieved by the participant once an 80% or greater score is achieved in the FINAL TEST.
In addition, each participant must complete the training on an individual basis. If you ask someone else to go through the program for you, you will not learn the information that will be necessary to protect your health and safety. This will render your certificate null and void.
PART 3 – SKILLS TESTING: In order to become fully certified, you will also need to complete a hands-on training program.
The final portion of our Fire Courses require you to complete the skills testing. Skills must be scheduled within the 2-3 months following completion of the Formal 30-Day Online Training (Part 2). Scheduling is done by emailing Student Services, [email protected]
