OTHER INFORMATION

Teaching students about SFT ID & using their Social Security Number

SFT's database relies on a SSN to create a new record for a student. Your SSN is the only unique identifier that will ensure your subsequent course completion records are matched and included in your training record. It is only necessary to provide your full and complete SSN, for one CFSTES or FSTEP class, before our database can issue you a unique SFT ID number which you may use for subsequent State Fire Training classes.

For more information click here.

Remember, SFT is a voluntary system and you do not have to provide your SSN on your Scantron if you so choose; however, by not providing it, we cannot process and store your CFSTES or FSTEP course completion record. If you have questions, contact the current Manager of Certification and Registration listed on our Contact Information webpage.
