Welcome to ResourceOne!

ResourceOne is THE source for curriculum for in-classroom face-to-face instruction, blended, and online training.

Effective, cost-efficient training is the goal of all instructors. The ability to deliver training with successful student outcomes requires cutting-edge tools and techniques. That is what you find at ResourceOne, the most up-to-date training resources based on the latest occupational and adult training best practices. Quality training resources, easy to access, with all the components needed, are now all in one location – ResourceOne.

ResourceOne (R1) provides a one-stop, online location for all IFSTA curriculum and learning resources. Instructors, fire departments and educational institutions who deliver training using IFSTA manuals will find instructional materials easy to access and simple to customize in ResourceOne. No need to wait for a flash drive to arrive in your mail box – find and download what you need at ResourceOne.

Online learning must deliver content, provide students with activities to apply their knowledge, engage students in discussions, and provide frequent interactions with the instructor. When a training program decides to deliver content through e-learning, ResourceOne is ready with the IFSTA learning management system, the ResourceOne Classroom (R1C).

The IFSTA ResourceOne Classroom learning management system (LMS) is provided as a benefit to instructors adopting IFSTA training manuals. The ResourceOne Classroom (R1C) is designed to be blended with a traditional face-to-face instructor led classroom or to replace classroom lessons so that students only attend class to practice and learn firefighter skills. The R1 Classroom provides features to instructors that are commonly available through other commercial learning management systems. Instructors have access at no cost to the ResourceOne Classroom when they demonstrate that they are an instructor and that their organization or department has adopted an IFSTA manual as the text students will use for a course.

In the R1 Classroom instructors will find the commonly developed IFSTA curriculum components provided in an online setting AND additional, premium content for instructors who want a more comprehensive e-learning solution. All instructional plans require that each student have a printed and/or eBook of the IFSTA manual to successfully complete the course.
