Welcome to GFSTC Online - Georgia Firefighter Standards & Training Council's website.
We have been listening to you and working hard to upgrade GFSTC Online. We believe that we have made this new site easier to find information for our fire service members. Here are some of the changes we hope you will find useful:
The initial home page is less “busy” and easier to negotiate.
New tabs make it easier to locate information.
News – current and past information sharing
Records Access – individual and fire department login for records access
Files – access to the many (but needed) documents.
Test Events – link to the very useful test calendar
Course Credit Lookup – direct access to more than 10,000 courses and classes submitted to this agency for initial and continued certification education.
About Us – information on contacting GFSTC staff and council members
Contact – send us your comments or ask questions
Search – this (in our opinion) is the most useful aspect of the new site. Looking for something on our site? Let the search engine find it for you.
Returning to the initial home page is accomplished by clicking anywhere on the “masthead” or photo/seal area at the top.
Have you ever been viewing a website from a mobile device, smart phone, or tablet and finding it difficult to navigate the “full site”? Our new site will recognize mobile devices and display in a friendlier format. (You may toggle from the mobile to full site format and back with the link at the bottom of the page.)
Also at the bottom are direct links for the administrative rules section in the Secretary of State’s website, the Lexis Nexis website to access Georgia law, and a link to email our webmaster, Chad Griffith.
Do bear in mind this site is new to us all and we are sure there will be areas we need to fine tune. We welcome your comments or suggestions!
To provide professionally trained, competent and ethical firefighters with the proper equipment and facilities, to ensure a fire safe environment for our citizens, and to establish professional standards for the fire service training including consulting, testing, and certification.
