Great courses at your own pace
This website has helped me to obtain the certifications that I need. It has been very easy to use and informative with a great price!
Great Courses with Great Instruction
I’ve taken many classes between all the Fire Officer, fire prevention, fire instructor, and Master’s Level courses. Matt does a great job of answering questions and assisting you if you are having any issues. He truly wants to see you succeed. The quality of material and information presented met all of my expectations along with what was needed for the Florida State Fire Exams. I felt confident going into all of the state exams and had zero problems passing the tests. I feel that taking courses by Public Safety and Development is a great way to not only learn, but further yourself as a professional in the Fire Service.
This is my third course that I have taken through PSTD. Every course I have taken have been fantastic. Online courses often tend to be easy and just going through the motions. Not the case with PSTD. You will learn something from every course you take here. Inexpensive training but far better than other online programs.
Great course curriculum
Great course curriculum with good explanation.
The quality of instruction and presentation is unmatched.
I have been in the Fire Service for nearly 2 decades at this point in my career. As an officer that tries to be as valuable to my department as possible, I have endeavored to continue my education in all fields related to our industry. In the last two years, I’ve utilized Public Safety Training and Development to complete coursework towards Inspector I and II, Instructor II, and Fire Officer III. The presentation of materials, the assistance I have received from the PSTD staff, particularly Lead Instructor Matt Trent, has been second to none. I’ve been challenged in each and every course I have taken, and learned much more than I expected BECAUSE I have been challenged.
Be advised, this is NOT a “Rubber Stamp Academy”. You will have to put in effort, do research, and actually produce results in these courses to pass, but if you are truly serious about learning as a Firefighter or Fire Officer, this is probably one of the best options out there for personal and career development.
I look forward to seeing what programs this institution offers in the future.
