National Fire Academy Releases New Online Course
The U.S. Fire Administration's (USFA) National Fire Academy (NFA) recently announced the release of its newest online course, Command and Control Decision Making at Multiple Alarm Incidents Self Study (Q297).
In early 2007, efforts began to redesign several of the NFA's resident courses using a blended learning format, whereby a portion of the newly revised course is available online. Q297 is the first course available under the new format.
This new self study course is the pre-course assignment for the resident course Command and Control Decision Making at Multiple Alarm Incidents (R297); however, USFS said anyone interested can enroll in the course.
"We are pleased to make this course available not only to the fire and emergency services, but to the general public as well," said Greg Cade, U.S. Fire administrator. "This particular course serves to broaden the student's knowledge and understanding of the use and significance of the Incident Command System."
This course and additional online courses are available through NFA Online.
