Vermont Fire Academy selects the Acadis® Readiness Suite to modernize firefighter and first responder testing, training, and certifications

BLOOMINGTON, IND. (December 20, 2021)—Acadis by Vector Solutions®, training, compliance, and performance software solution for public safety agencies across the U.S, is pleased to announce that Vermont Fire Academy (VFA) will utilize the Acadis Readiness Suite to modernize and connect separate legacy systems for testing and tracking training and certifications.

VFA, part of the Vermont Department of Public Safety Division of Fire Safety, offers educational, training, and professional development programs to firefighters and first responders throughout the state. With Acadis®, the academy will transition certification test banks to Acadis, allowing instructors and administrators to easily manage training and compliance and automate the reporting of annual recertifications.

“We’re excited to bring multiple, disconnected systems into one system that will also allow us to do testing better, automate, and make annual recertifications much easier to track, year by year,” says Michael Skaza, Training Program Coordinator, Vermont Fire Academy.

Firefighter 1 (FF1) is the minimum certification required by the state to be a full-time firefighter. Vermont requires an annual renewal of the FF1 certification, including 24-hours of training in various categories.

“Firefighters are among our most necessary first responders. We’re excited to work with the Vermont Fire Academy to help them migrate away from legacy systems and improve the training and certification of these critical emergency response workers,” says Ari Vidali, CEO of Envisage Technologies.

Acadis® became a Vector Solutions brand when Vector acquired the company (formerly known as Envisage Technologies) in September 2021.
