    Connecticut Fire Academy Launches New Online System for Streamlined Student Registration and Transcript Acces

    Windsor Locks, Conn, March 8, 2023 – The Connecticut Commission on Fire Prevention and Control-CT Fire Academy has announced the launch of a new online system, the Acadis® Readiness Suite, for streamlined student registration and record access, aimed at improving the user experience for firefighters across the state.

    “We’re thrilled to be able to offer a better experience to our students,” said P.J. Norwood, Director of Training at the CT Fire Academy. “We recognized that there were issues with our old system, and we wanted to streamline the process and make it easier for everyone involved.”

    The Acadis system-purpose-built for public safety training academies-allows for seamless registration of students for the CT Fire Academy’s 300+ classes per year. It also provides easy access to course materials and comprehensive class information, including instructors, curriculum, hours and dates. This capability will help ensure that the Academy has readily available training and certification data to ensure compliance, as well as provide valuable information that is more accessible for students and other stakeholders.

    In addition to improved registration, Acadis will soon give students online access to their certificates and transcripts which they can easily print-eliminating the need for multiple phone calls, faxes, and emails.

    “We’re excited to implement Acadis,” said Norwood. “We believe it will make a real difference in firefighters’ experience with the Academy, and we’re looking forward to seeing its positive impact.”

    The CT Fire Academy is the state’s premier training institution for firefighters, providing high-quality training and certification programs to firefighters across Connecticut. With the launch of Acadis, the Academy is taking another step forward in providing the best possible service to its students and the firefighting community.
