April 22, 2009 – The Canadian Volunteer
Fire Services Association and online training provider Medteq
Solutions, have partnered to make available one million dollars in
grants for firefighters who want to pursue online training.


The
Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association (CVFSA) believes online distance education is one way
to ensure that all firefighters, volunteer or career, are prepared for 
every type of situation they encounter while on the job.

"In
all fields a fast-growing trend is via distance training in the form of online
internet classes where it gives the individual the flexibility to fit lifestyle
around family," says CVFSA president Martin Bell.

"The
CVFSA believes in offering the volunteer firefighters the ability to train
under NFPA standards towards improving their skills with this unique approach
of combining innovation with tradition."

To help the CVFSA in its endeavor to further benefit the more than 3,000 Canadian
volunteer and combination fire departments, online training provider Medteq Solutions has agreed to be the delivery partner for this training
grant.

Grant
application will be available beginning May 1, 2009 at www.cvfsa.ca or www.medteqsolutions.ca
