I had the opportunity to send one of my new firefighters through the first TEEX Online Academy, this firefighter was able to follow the given lesson plans very effectively and complete all testing requirements with very positive results. I personally attended several of the practical skills days and witnessed the firefighters performing all of the required skills with confidence and accuracy.
