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 Bookstore/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.
