TFACA and the Commission of Firefighter Personnel Standards and Education are live on our new Student Management System ACADIS. The ACADIS system was purchased to assist in managing student training records, certifications, on-line applications and several other key roles. We have about 160 departments using the portal at this time. More departmetns will be added after the testing is completed. The system is designed to allow individual users to register for classes and view their training records.
Begining in September 2014 individuals completing classes on the TFACA campus withh be given access to ACadis. This is the begining of the testing period for individuals. Each class will recive a training lesson on how to access the protal and ask to watch the tutiorial using the links on the protal home page to learn more.
TFACA Fire Progrma is offering "In-Service" traiing course to help departmetns meet the requiremetns of the Educational INcentive training requirements. Several classes are available so contact us to get added to the growing list of department requesting these classes.
Our new 2 position Driving SImulator is scheduled to arrrive in mid-October. Following training provided by the manufacture, TFACA instructors will spend the winter months working the scenarios and getting ready for a Spring 2015 rollout. We expect to have a big anouncement about the roll-out in November. We are excited to add this new simulator to our list of opportunities to provide training.
I appreciate the support given to our staff and the academy. The staff works to improve the training received through TFACA, and I am confident they will continue to enhance the program.
