Fire Safety Research Institute (FSRI), part of UL Research Institutes, just announced the release of the new online course titled Prerequisites for Live Fire Training Participants. Based on section 4.3.2 of the standard NFPA 1403, this course focuses on the foundational knowledge firefighters need before donning their gear and taking action on the training ground.

After taking this course, firefighters will be able to apply foundational knowledge of fire dynamics, fire behavior and development, firefighting tactics, and firefighter health and safety. This understanding will help them get the most out of their training and make safe and effective decisions on the fireground.

FSRI announced that it launched a major update to its Fire Safety Academy (FSA), the online learning platform that provides firefighters with free access to science-based training. “FSA 2.0” now features seamless integration with other learning platforms, integration of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards, custom learning pathways, blended learning options, shorter and more modular lessons, robust training officer tools, and more.

As the first course launched in the updated Fire Safety Academy, “Prerequisites for Live Fire Training Participants” takes advantage of the new cutting-edge features tailored to training officers. The course is broken down into bite-size lessons that instructors can deliver individually to reinforce a key concept or teach as part of a customized learning pathway. In addition, all lesson videos are downloadable. Instructors can easily integrate the videos into their existing curriculum, facilitating in-person training sessions for groups of students.
