What’s New –  October 2021

  1. We have updated the alerting rules to help admins stay on top of open OJT & Practical exams. Now when a student completes the lesson and exams for a course that also has OJT and/or Practical Exams, the student's status will be set to Warning (orange) and a status message will appear in the student's detail page. This change should help increase awareness of outstanding OJT and Practical Exams.



  2. We have fixed an issue with the reporting system that impacted companies with two students with the same name. Now, the drop-down menu for selecting a student includes the student's username in parentheses following their name.

  3. In order to comply with the newly released AC 150/5230-4c, F008 – DEF Contamination will be added to the 139.321 (e)(1) & (2) ONLY default course tracks on October 8th. On November 1st, F008 will be a requirement for the 139.321(e)(1) and (e)(2) ratings. AFTER THIS DATE, ANYONE WHO HAS NOT COMPLETED F008 WILL NO LONGER BE IN COMPLIANCE WITH 139.321 AND WILL LOSE THEIR 139 RATINGS!

Not New but Worth Remembering!

What’s New – June 2021

  1. We have updated the downloadable 139 Compliance Report to include columns for the date of students last fire extinguisher hands-on-training and last local fire code briefing. We will be updating the online version of the report as well in the next few weeks. These changes will assist inspectors in locating the information necessary to complete their audits.

  2. We have added a “Firm Detail” page under the “Resources” tab in the admin portal. The “Firm Detail” page provides information on:
    - Company info
    - Primary Safety 1st Contact Info
    - Slots purchased and slots used

  3. There is now a “Summary Report” available in the “Reports” tab in the admin portal. The “Summary Report” provides the total number of courses assigned to each student and the number of courses the student has completed within their current course track.

  4. Course Expiration Report – This report allows administrators to see students who have courses expiring in the next 120 days.
