The Delaware State Fire School is now be presenting new online content through the Delaware State Fire School Delaware Learning Center online learning page. Students will continue to be able to access online content and obtain training remotely. There are a variety of courses already available that are listed below. As more courses become available, we will spread the word.
You WILL need a login (account) before being assigned to any training. If you have not registered for an account, use the link below to our page using that button on the page and follow the prompts. While creating your account, be sure to use care in spelling. This has been the most reoccurring problem with accounts and difficulty accessing training or receiving notifications. Also be sure that you do not use ANY spaces in the password, including before and after. Contact us to be sure you can access our training. Instructions to create an account can be found here and the video below walks you through the steps.
If you have a State of Delaware Employee ID, you already have a login!

Do I need to register for an account with each course?
No, you only need to have one account. Eventually, all of our online learning will take place on the Delaware Learning Center, making it more convenient having only one account to login with. If you haven’t already done so, use the instructions in the file or the video above to make your account.
Is the account I setup for Coursesites on the Delaware Learning Center?
No, this is a totally new and separate system from Coursesites. Any course that was previously on that system is now separately on the Delaware Learning System. We will be moving away from Coursesites entirely.
I am going to take a Fire Officer or Fire Instructor Course, do I need to use the Delaware Learning Center?
Not yet. But we hope to move all of the course content for our Fire Officer and Instructor programs over to the Delaware Learning Center.
Is there a specific internet browser I need?
No. At this time, it appears all browsers on computers support the Delaware Learning Center. You may encounter problems with certain files, like Flash Player files that may not work on certain browser platforms. You may be able to do some or all of our course using a mobile device, but we want to warn you that it may not always work. We recommend that you try to use a personal computer if having difficulties on a mobile device, and try to use another browser if having trouble using a certain computer, before contacting us with problems.
Will I automatically be signed up for my course once I sign up for an account?
No. It will normally take 1 to 2 business days to get your account approved. Once it is approved, it may take another 1 to 2 days depending on when registrations are processed. Once you have created, along with more users doing the same, it will be much easier to be assigned and begin online training with the State Fire School.
Will I need to activate and mark each section complete?
As we move forward, this will become less of a problem. You will continue to need to activate and launch your training, but soon it will become a more seamless process making your training experience easier.
Please reach out to us at the Fire School if you continue to have problems or have questions about the Delaware Learning System.
Notice: All courses through FEMA, both in classroom or online, require a FEMA Student Identification (SID) Number. If you do not yet have a SID, or need to request yours, please go to the FEMA SID web page.
