What Should a Training Management System Do?


As fire departments face increasing demands with fewer resources, selecting the right software is crucial. Integrating training management into other software, like an RMS to create a “one-stop-shop”, can lead to usability challenges, decreased performance, and insufficient reporting and data analysis.

A dedicated training solution that offers comprehensive functionality is essential for public safety professionals to effectively meet their training goals. But how do you determine which functionality is essential versus those that are just nice to have?

Questions you should ask when evaluating training management systems include:
  • Is the user interface built for public safety?
  • Does the system support records retention and allow agencies to export records as they please?
  • Does the system allow agencies to track state and/or national firefighting and EMS recertification requirements?
  • Can the system create custom training plans or tracks?
