SFT Distance Ed Message from Caryn Petty


Good afternoon all,

As many of your programs begin welcoming student learners back to your facilities, we all find ourselves amidst the ever-evolving pandemic and the flexibility of instructional delivery. State Fire Training has been keeping a close eye on emerging COVID restrictions statewide and wanted to extend the continued invitation for any preemptive Distance Education curriculum delivery. I will work with your program(s) to provide an expedited review of submission to alleviate some undue stress should your programs need to move to a Distance Education format.

Application: https://osfm.fire.ca.gov/media/fsegot1v/distance-education-application.pdf

Outline Example Letter: https://osfm.fire.ca.gov/media/10849/distance-education-outline-example.docx

Previously approved Outline and Supplemental Documentation may be resubmitted for processing and review – you need only update pertinent information, as appropriate (Instructors, course dates, instructional delivery methodology).

Let me know if you have any questions or need assistance. Be safe and be well.
