More than 100 FREE online training classes...Interested?

I have been on a quest to find as many free online training classes I can for over a year. To date, I have taken over 100 online courses and have received certificates in all of them but that is just the tip of the iceberg of what I have found available. I am currently in the process of enrolling in a degree program through Columbia Southern University (online), and know that many of the certificates I have received from these online training classes will be accepted for college credit.

 

I have decided, at the request/suggestion of another FFN member (Captain Busy) to post all the website links I have found, so that all of my friends and fellow firefighters can benefit from the time I have spent researching these sites.

 

Enjoy the list and let me know what you think or if there are any courses you may be interested in that I do not have listed. Never know I may just be able to find them for you. Happy studying!!! Be careful and stay safe out there!

Thanx Tammy. I definitely prefer having an instructor in front of me for questions but these are an awesome way to amplify that. One can never learn enough. Also I have a fair amount of free time at work on the midnight shift and this is a good way to fill it. Keep the links coming and thanx again.
Hey, I have an idea... I bet you the programs that I come up with far outweigh any recent changes that you feel you are missing out on. Maybe I should send you some training programs that you in turn could share with the local fire department folks. It's all about making you look good Brian. What do you say we blow some people away? Who's to know that one of your buddies is an old fire captain with a large bag of tricks?

Hey Captain Busy, I would love to see some of those programs...
Sounds like a good plan to me Cap. As for my local dept... well.. not so sure. You know, as crazy as it might sound, there is a definite possibility that people still discriminate in this wonderful world of emergency services. lol Hell, I tried to return to service in whatever capacity I could while I am waiting for my operation. I can still drive and pump, (the fire truck) lol, training programs, pre-incident planning is my fav. etc etc.. but, for some strange reason, some fire departments still insist that they hire guys with working lungs! go figure lol so the chief said no. you are useless to us. Maybe me and you should chat! and anyone else for that matter that wants in. I could use some help for sure!
Well, I am so happy that I have been able to help others by posting these sites. Please if you haven't already done so, forward a link to this discussion to your friends so they may benefit as well....

I do have a question for anyone that would like to answer...does listing the "Titles" of courses offered on each site make more sense then making individual listings based on particular subject areas? LOL, not to sound lazy but this format for posting links is much easier and makes more sense to me, but that is just my opinion. Let me know what you think....Thanks everyone for your interest & Happy studying!!!
