Fire School Policies
Registration Policy***No walk-in registrations will be accepted, all students must be pre-registered.***
Effective January 1, 2014, to make it easier for students to register for training programs. The Fire Training Committee is dropping the pre-payment requirement and will go to post-class invoicing. The Committee believes this will allow students and agencies greater ease in trying to register for programs. Properly completed and signed registration forms can be returned by US mail; be scanned and emailed ([email protected]); or faxed to 610-378-5568.
Invoices to agencies will be generated upon completion of the class and sent to agencies. It is the policy of the training committee to bill the company/agency. Invoices to individual students will not be generated as how a company/agency chooses to internally handle payment is on them, but it is ultimately the agency’s responsibility.
This does NOT eliminate the current no-show policy and agencies will be billed for students who register and do not show up for a class.
Any agency in arrears on payment for greater than 60 days will not be allowed to register students for classes, and any agency that is past due 120 days will have all existing student registrations cancelled.
***Please note – if your agency/department pre-paid for any classes, please be assured that you have been appropriately credited and you will receive receipts as normal.***
Minimum Student Requirements
In order for them to run, courses must have a minimum of 10 students* registered 14 days prior to the first day of the course. Subject to seat availability, we will continue to accept registrations postmarked up to 7 days prior to the first day of any course, but these registrations will not affect the decision to run or cancel courses. Students will need to provide an email address on the registration form so that they can notified of course status.
*Some courses require a higher number of minimum students for logistical and safety reasons.
Student Cancellations/No-Show Policy
Students who have registered may cancel up to 14 days prior to the first day of the course by having their Department Chief or Training Officer send an email message to [email protected]. After that time, any registered student will be considered a “no show” and the student’s department will be billed.
