*New Email Requirement
The Division of Fire Safety has modified its computer system to require that each person registering
into a course must have a valid, permanent email address on the personal information page of their
myNewJersey account. A permanent email address is one which will not be affected by a change in
internet service provider, for example yahoo, gmail, aol or msn. Please check your personal information
page to ensure a complete email address is displayed. For example firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you
attempt to register without an email address on your record, the computer will present an error message
which will instruct you to add an email address. You will be prohibited from enrolling into the courses
unless a complete, permanent email address is added to your record. This new requirement is to
ensure that the Division of Fire Safety has valid email addresses for each person registered. This will
facilitate communicating to enrolled students should a course delivery be cancelled due to illness of the
instructor or weather conditions. Please go to Registration Help and select Videos for a video on how to
update your email address. http://www.keanfiresafety.com/RegistrationHelp/Video.html.

For All Students- If you are unable to attend a course, please call 609-777-3552 to cancel as soon as
possible so that someone else may use your space. Failure to cancel will be recorded and action may
be taken. Do not call the academy where the course is being held to cancel. Credit will not be given for
repeating a course within a three-year period, with the exception of Code Update. Although computer
records are kept, you should keep a record of the courses you have completed. All courses begin promptly
at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at approximately 3:30 p.m., unless otherwise indicated. In order to receive
course credit, you must be present prior to the start of class and in the classroom for the entire course.
Credit may not be granted if you arrive late, return late from lunch and breaks, leave early, or if you are
not in the classroom while the course is in session. The use of electronic devices (i.e texting, ipad/laptop
usage or any other electronic devices) that will disturb the instruction of the course delivery is strictly
prohibited. Students who do not adhere to the guidelines will be asked to remove themselves from the
classroom and will not receive credit for the enrolled course.
Confirmation of Attendance- Students can receive same-day confirmation of attendance at a course.
If you are interested in receiving verification on the day you attend a course, you must bring your
confirmation notice with you to class. After the class has concluded, the facilitator will stamp this notice as
proof that you attended the course.
Dress Code- The Division of Fire Safety has instituted a dress code for attendance at courses.
Appropriate Dress includes long pants, shirts with sleeves, and shoes. Sleeveless shirts and shorts are not
permitted at any DFS course, exam or conference. Facility representatives will enforce this dress code, and
those who do not comply may be dismissed from the course and/or lose credit.
