Latest training opportunities
Fire code training
Starting in September, we will be offering interactive, hands-on classes that will walk you through the latest changes in Minnesota’s Fire Code.
We’ll discuss important code changes and help you understand the new fire code format. The two-day class will also address some of the most common fire code questions our staff receive from Minnesota firefighters. This is not an entry-level class. Students should have some familiarity with the fire code and fire inspections.
