Training & Learning Center

Regional Training Academies

ER offers both in-person and online training opportunities to help you master our system.

We currently offer online training and regional in-person training fit to meet the needs of the most demanding departments.

Online Training Academy

Our Online Training Academy is designed to walk you through everything from the basic functions that our system offers, to in-depth admin configuration. With basic and advanced sessions, you can sign your team up for the class that meets your needs. Best of all, classes can be taken in the comfort of your station, home, car … whatever you prefer.

Regional Training Academy (in-person)

(RTA) is a 3-day, interactive training experience created for you and your staff to become Emergency Reporting experts. Emergency Reporting is a lot more than just NFIRS Reporting, and a Regional Training Academy is your chance to unlock the potential of the system for your department.

To find out about other events we are offering, contact one of our trainers today!

All Emergency Reporting Trainers are active or recently retired public safety professionals with over 200 years of combined firefighting and EMS experience. Meet our training team here.

What Recent RTA Attendees Are Saying

“The information that was covered will definitely benefit not only myself as a administrator, but also my department in regards to reports and data.”
– Peter Budagher, Santa Fe County Fire Department

“This class should be required by at least one administrator on the Emergency Reporting system (if not more). Very informative and worth every minute of my time.”
– David Richardson, Midwest City Fire Department

“The most valuable aspect of this conference was the face-to-face interaction between the trainers and the conference members. I appreciate that Emergency Reporting really seems to care about the customer.”
– Ronald Boensch, Bridgeport Fire Department

On-site Training

Tailored workshops are a great option for any department wanting to get more out of the system. A member of the Emergency Reporting training staff can work with your department to put together a customized training program. Our trainers are all current or retired firefighters, so they know how to make Emergency Reporting work best for your department. Whether your agency needs a refresher on system basics, or in-depth training on specific modules and advanced features, our training team is there the help.

Prices vary based on number of attendees and location. For more information, or to schedule an onsite training event for your department, contact the training team.
