What our customers are saying
“As a Training Chief of a combination fire department, there has been a long standing issue of getting quality training into the hands of our busy members. Action Training Systems has made training easy to administer and even easier for our members to get the training they need. The online platform allows our members to learn at their pace and at a time that makes it convenient for them. Perhaps best of all, it allows more time spent on learning the hands-on skills needed to be a proficient responder. I highly recommend ATS to any department that is struggling with busy people who want the training, but may not have large blocks of time to sit in a classroom.”
Mike Moore, Chief Training Officer
Southern Stone County Fire Protection District, Mo

People learn in many different ways. Some ways are more effective for certain learners to retain or grasp information, which is why adapting to learning styles when training in the fire service is so important. Fire department members, whether career or volunteer, come from all walks of life, and backgrounds, have different education levels, have age and generational differences, and ranges of experience.
