Action Training Systems (ATS), in partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), is giving away 50 online Essentials of Fire Fighting training packages to all-volunteer or mostly-volunteer fire departments, for a total of nearly $250,000 worth of training. ATS has just announced that all applicants become eligible for a 10 percent discount on any ATS online training programs.

The deadline to apply is May 1, 2014.

Through the ATS/NVFC $250K Training Giveaway, eligible departments can apply for a training package that provides 20 department members with free access to Essentials of Fire Fighting online training for one year. This 33 volume series is instructionally designed to teach current Firefighter I & II skills and prerequisite knowledge. The 10% discount can be applied toward Firefighter I&II training or other ATS online content such as Hazmat, Driver/Operator, Emergency Operations, Officer Development, EMR, EMT, and Infection Control and Prevention.
