Scheduling Request Forms
HOW TO REQUEST & REGISTER A COURSE
"Approval will not be granted after the fact; approval must be obtained before beginning the class" (SFT Procedures Manual pg. 17 & 21.) More information can be found in the SFT Procedures Manual click here OR Refer to the SFT Procedures Manual (ver 2008) p. 17 and 21.
SCHEDULING/RETURNING A COURSE
√ Download and use current Requests for Course Scheduling forms; older forms delay your request.
√ Verify that your desired instructor is registered to teach the class. This can be done by visiting the online instructor database located on the instructor tab of the homepage.
√ Except for one- and two-squad Confined Space Rescue Technician class deliveries, a Senior Instructor cannot also be the Primary Instructor. They must be two separate and qualified registered instructors.
√ Fill-in the name of the "Training Facility" even if it is the same as the sponsor.
√ Do Not complete below the section of the form titled, "For State Fire Training Only"
√ Urgent requests must be discussed first with the Course Scheduler. If the Shipping/Receiving clerk can accommodate your request, the Course Scheduler will ask for an emailed or faxed Request for Course Scheduling form at that time. Approval will only be granted on a case by case basis.
Receiving Course Materials
When emailing to request a change/cancellation please include the class code number that is listed on the approval letter, in addition to the old class information (i.e. dates, instructor, location) as well as the new changes that need to be applied.NOTE: If a class is cancelled after State Fire Training has shipped the materials, immediately return the entire shipment to the Shipping/Receiving clerk using a carrier that can track your shipment.
Returning a Class
If the Shipping/Receiving clerk receives a class that cannot be processed because of incomplete paperwork, it will be returned to the Primary Instructor. Checklists and other forms can be found on the Shipping & Receiving tab.
