ISO Credit for Multimedia Training
Do Action Training System’s computer-based training products or DVDs, based on NFPA and other industry standards, have ISO approval?
According to the ISO’s Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) Item 580, the ISO will accept certain types of training presented in a multi-media format. Credit may be given for the use of various training media (such as video, CD-ROM, computer-based-training (CBT), closed circuit or satellite TV, etc.) when the subject material relates to structural firefighting and related topics. The intent is to credit materials that have an educational component, not just viewing materials that are just entertainment in nature.
ISO credit is based on the following criteria:
If the training is done in the context of a company training session whereby members of that company are in attendance, the number of hours credited will be limited to a maximum of 50% of the hours needed as defined in the FSRS. For instance, under Item 580.B Company Training (which has a criteria of 20 hours per member per month for full credit), company training constituting 30 hours of structure firefighting training via a feed from satellite TV over a one month period of time would be eligible for a maximum of 10 hours of credit.
Items eligible for this training include FSRS:
- Item 580.B Company Training up to 50%
- Item 580.C Classes for Officers up to 100%
- Item 580.E New Driver and Operator Training up to 100%
- Item 580.F Training on Hazardous Materials up to 100%
- Item 580.G Recruit Training up to 100%
Training media is an essential part of most recruit training classes, but the foundation of these classes revolve around instructor-guided classes and practical lessons. The ISO does not approve or endorse specific brand-name products, but there’s no reason why fire departments using multimedia products to train firefighters under the guidelines mentioned above should not receive credit in the FSRS.

As times have changed, ATS continues to evolve and deliver our programs through new and innovative technologies to ensure our customers have the best resources to meet and exceed the ever changing demands to protect the communities they serve.
At ATS, we have listened to our customer's needs with regard to new content areas to develop and budget concerns that continue to impact the emergency response community. We have recently updated our Aerial Apparatus: Driver/Operator series, as well as developing new titles for our Incident Command and Management series. We now offer a French version of our EMR series for our Canadian customers. We will continue to develop and expand our EMS content as well. ATS now offers a wider range of pricing options for our ATS Online products to better address your budget concerns and content needs. We offer all of this with the same high quality media-rich presentations that you have expected and trusted over the years.
I am excited about ATS' continued relationship with IFSTA/FPP. We have recently revisited and revitalized what our two organizations can bring to the emergency response community. We have been working closely together to bring a wider range of ATS content through IFSTA/FPP's Resource One. We believe that through our combined efforts, the emergency response community will have an expanded range of much needed quality training resources that will be unrivaled in the Fire Service and emergency response market.
I would like to acknowledge our loyal, hardworking and dedicated team at ATS for providing their expertise to bring you, the men and women who serve your communities, the total training solution in and beyond the classroom.
