Kentucky Fire Commission Approved Online Fire Courses
In August 2016, the Kentucky Fire Commission voted to approve FireRescue1 Academy as an online education training provider for recertification in the state of Kentucky. All courses provided in the fire series offered are approved for recertification or refresher training.
As noted by the Kentucky Fire Commission, this approval is subject to several conditions, including that:
- A maximum of 25% of annual required training be obtained through online sources;
- Online training is online for recertification and does not include initial certification;
- Firefighter training hours be monitored/supervised by a Kentucky Fire Commission certified instructor;
- Courses that are CAPCE accredited are eligible for use towards EMS continuing education hours, provided that all applicable KBEMS regulations are followed when awarding credit for online training for EMS certification/recertification*
*FireRescue1 Academy is not responsible for continuing education credits that are rejected in any way. Given the variation in the approval and acceptance of continuing education credits state to state, it is advised that EMS providers and firefighters confirm recertification and training requirements, including accepted courses, with their state EMS and fire authorities.
