Setting Up Training 3.0 - Part 01 - Settings Overview

Correctly setting up Training 3.0 is essential for getting the very most out of this Module.

The key to success is to take your time working through each of the tabs before you begin to actively use Training 3.0. If you know how you would like to be able to extract your data through reports it will help you during set-up. The majority of reports will be using Class Categories, Training Codes, and Standards so special attention should be focussed on these.

Note: This KB Article provides an introduction and suggestions for best practices. To further assist you, each tab also has a separate Knowledge Base Article.

Navigate to Training 3.0 Module

Click on the Settings button in Training 3.0,

pay particularly close attention to the first three tabs as these are required in order to complete a class entry:

One way to look at these tabs is to think of a tree:

  • Training 3.0 Module is the trunk of the tree.
  • Class Categories are the biggest branches and will generally contain broad categories.
    • Examples:
      • Emergency Medical Services Training
      • Firefighter Training
      • Special Operations Training
    An exception to this might be that instead of a Class Category for Firefighting, some departments may choose multiple Class Categories such as Structural Firefighting, Wildland Firefighting, and Aircraft Firefighting because it helps meet their reporting needs better.
  • Training Code Categories are smaller branches where typically the categories are more detailed. However, depending on how you choose to categorize your classes you may decide to keep a Code Category the same as a Class Category.
    • Examples:
      • Driving
      • Ladders
      • Policy Administration
  • Training Codes are the smallest branches of the tree that list specific topics and/or objectives.
    • Examples:
      • ACLS
      • Fire Instructor I
      • Ladder Carries

An Example of the “tree”:

Class Category
Firefighter Training
 
Training Code Category
Multiple Company Drill
 
Training Code
Mayday Drills

Another way to think of these tabs comes from the ICS Model:

Training 3.0 ICS Model
Class Category Strategy Level
Training Code Category Tactics Level
Training Code Task Level

Now you’re ready to begin building your Training 3.0 Module!
