The two-day virtual training can be scheduled for any two consecutive weekdays with the local start time desired by the host organization. Weekend training requests will be considered. The IAFF strives to accommodate requested training dates based on instructor availability. To ensure enough lead time for preparations, please request dates at least three months in advance. To schedule the IAFF Virtual Resiliency Training for your local or department, complete the IAFF Virtual Resiliency Training Request Form and email it to [email protected].
Host Site Responsibilities
Any IAFF-affiliated department can serve as a host site. Host responsibilities:
- Sign a contract with the IAFF and pay the full training fee in advance, no later than one month before the training date.
- Identify one person to serve as the point of contact (POC). The POC is responsible for getting the contract signed by the appropriate IAFF local or department officer and returning it to the IAFF in timely manner.
- Share the unique registration link with desired participants.
Individual Student Responsibilities:
- Students are strongly encouraged to participate off shift from a remote and quiet location. Each student is required to have a reliable internet connection.
- Each student is required to attend the training from an individual computer with a webcam and microphone. Students are not permitted to join from cell phones, iPads or tablets.
- Students may not share a computer during the training.
- Students may not join the training from more than one device.
- Provide a two-day virtual training on resiliency in the fire service on a secure online platform.
- Arrange for three instructors to deliver the training and pay all instructor-related expenses.
- Supply and ship student manuals and handouts to each individually registered participant at the address they designate.
- Provide the host a customized flyer, announcing the training date, time and point of contact to register.
- Provide access to pre-course materials, to include the IAFF Resiliency Training overview video series.
- Provide students the Zoom link to access the two-day training.
- Send completion certifications to participants who have completed the training.
Fire service personnel of any rank and position – active or retired – may participate in the training. In addition, host sites may choose to invite other relevant community members (e.g., EAP, local behavioral health providers, chaplains, researchers) to expose these non-fire personnel to fire fighter and EMS wellness training.
Certificates will be awarded once the participant completes the final online training evaluation.
