Firehouse Magazine (the very magazine you are reading right now) has announced the debut of MyFirehouseTraining.com, an online learning platform designed to provide training, coursework and CEU credits for firefighters. MyFirehouseTraining.com includes basic to advanced-level education developed exclusively by Firehouse authors and contributors, and covers a wide range of critical subjects – including EMS training, incident management, personal protection, USAR, high-angle rescue, vehicle extrication, hazmat, NFPA standards and more.
“MyFirehouseTraining.com operates as a virtual workbook – hosting certificates, course paths and curriculums – and provides award-winning course instructors with experience in many facets of safety and rescue,” said Freddie Batista, vice president at Safety Solutions Inc., who partnered with Firehouse in creating the specialty portal.
The easy-to-use platform and personalized dashboard can be accessed via any Internet connection, according to Batista, including smartphones, iPads/iPhones and Android OS devices.
“Continuing education and training are life and death issues for first responders,” said Patricia Maroder, publisher of Firehouse. “With this new Web initiative, we’re now able to provide a convenient and cost-efficient way for firefighters to receive CEU credits online, track and manage their education and download certificates right from the convenience of their desktops.”
Safety Solutions (home of FireServiceTraining.com) is a leading provider of emergency response, technology assessment, training and its award-winning product “Hazmat Smart Strip.” The company has developed learning programs for major fire departments nationwide, including New York City and Miami, and has conducted training for the military, FEMA and NASA. MyFirehouseTraining.com is a customized version of Safety Solutions’ learning platform Blender. Blender was created for firefighters by firefighters – in partnership with SRG Technology, Inc.
