The registration period begins on September 12, 2018 at 9 a.m. and continues through the semester. Registration for each course closes 24 hours prior to the class start time. You may register for a maximum of six (6) courses each semester. In special cases you may register for additional classes over the maximum limit, but only on a space available basis and approval by NJ Division of Fire Safety. Please call 609-777-3552 for approval. Credit will not be issued for repeat courses which have already been completed within your active certification cycle, with the exception of Code Update.  The NJ Division of Fire Safety reserves the right to limit the number of enrollments per person.

Withdraw From A Course

If you are unable to attend a course, you must within 24 hours of that course. Failure to withdraw or receiving a No Show on your record could result in the DFS revoking registration privileges for future courses. Please be courteous to other fire service members who may want/need to attend the course, if you’re not going to fill the seat. Please read the instructions below to withdraw from a course.

Course Confirmation Notice

You will receive a confirmation notice of enrollment via email to the email account you provide in the creation of your account. Please be sure to adjust your settings to allow email from wordpress@keanfiresafety.com. We strongly suggest that you use an email account that is not provided by your internet server, i.e. @Comcast, @optimum, @Verizon so that you will be able to access your email even if you change internet service providers. We suggest a “permanent email” such as yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.

All communications regarding courses will be via email and you are responsible for checking for notices prior to attending any course. If you don’t receive email in your inbox, please check your junk/spam box/folder and see if your confirmation was delivered there and then adjust your settings to allow delivery to your inbox.

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 print out and bring your emailed confirmation notice with you to class. After the class has concluded, the facilitator will stamp this notice as proof that you attended the course. Although computer records are kept, we recommend you keep a record of all courses you attend and complete.

Unless otherwise noted in the course description, all courses begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at approximately at 3:30 p.m. unless otherwise indicated.  Please note, all instructors, have by contract agreed that they will provide the minimum number of contact hours that the NJ Division of Fire Safety requires in order to provide the credit amount indicated for each course. They are not allowed to adjust the course length without permission from NJ Division of Fire Safety or Kean University. Providing an early dismissal without permission could jeopardize the ability of the NJ Division of Fire Safety to grant any credit for your attendance in the course.

In order to receive course credit, you must check in with the course facilitator, 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 the location early or frequently leave the classroom while the course is in session.

Additionally, you may not receive credit if you are observed to be using the internet, reading a newspaper/magazine or engaging in behavior in such a manner that is not conducive to your participation in the class or causes a disruption/distraction to other students or the instructor. If you are asked to discontinue such behavior and you do not immediately comply you may not receive credit. The facilitator and instructor have the right to ask for your cooperation and they are not required to repeat that request. In other words, by reading this notice and agreeing to these terms you acknowledge that you will not receive more than one request to cooperate and failure to immediately do so may result in no credit being given.

Dress Code

The NJ 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, shorts, and hats are not permitted at any DFS course, exam or conference. Facility representatives may enforce this dress code and those who do not comply may be dismissed from the course and /or lose credit.
