The Training Resource Guide contains information on the training and certification opportunities available to the Massachusetts Fire Service. Courses are ordered by program area and include descriptions, course numbers, and credit hours. The guide can be viewed as a complete PDF, but we have also broken it up by training programs in order to make course descriptions easier to find.
The complete guide includes: a letter from DFS, an introduction to our training programs, course offerings, course descriptions, as well as information on course certification, how to host a course, and a course request form. Please click the link above to view the guide in PDF format.
