Fire Investigation Online Course
Are you interested in fire investigation education but like many others have found the training options to be inconvenient, unaffordable or both?
What about these challenges:
- unable to spend several days or weeks away to attain a fire investigator designation?
- scheduling conflicts, high travel costs and increased wages when sending your fire department members away to obtain these credentials?
FireWise Learning Academy has the solution!
Complete our standards-based online fire investigation education from the convenience of your computer – either at your fire department or from home. Once complete, attend a scheduled two-and-a-half-day practical skills development and evaluation session. Upon successful completion of the practical and cognitive testing, students will receive ProBoard accreditation from the College of the Rockies.
