SFRT Virtual Training

In Spring 2020, due to complexities surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Kentucky Fire Commission and State Fire Rescue Training implemented a virtual, instructor-led training (VILT) platform as an additional method to train firefighters.

Virtual training differs from online training, as virtual training is done in real time rather than with course material that has been previously published online and can be accessed 24/7. Therefore, those firefighters working toward their initial certifications will have hours attained during virtual training sessions count toward their Basic 1 and Basic 2 certifications.

The Fire Commission posts virtual training sessions on its Google Calendar. This calendar can be accessed directly through the link below:

Class information and instructions/links for logging in to the class will be available in the body of the event and are visible after clicking on the event link. Please note that the training calendar defaults all start times of all classes to Eastern time zone; the correct time zone is in the body of the event information.

All participants will need a device with a camera (Computer, iPad, Tablet, Phone). Roll will be taken at the beginning of the class, at the return of any breaks and at the end of class. An assistant instructor will monitor all students during the class to ensure participation. Training sheets will be emailed by the SFRT district office hosting the training to the fire department the student lists on the training roster.
