?    This is a multi-part form.  You will complete two sections.

?    Students taking the Hazardous Materials Awareness Course will need to create a CANVAS account to take the online portion though MFRI CANVAS. Follow the instructions on the CANVAS attachment.

TESTING PROCESS:

 
Upon completion of the Haz-Mat Course you will be sent directions and passcode to take the online exam via the FRA LMS system. This passcode has an expiration date. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO TAKE THE EXAM. If you have an issue in taking the exam follow the directions in the e-mail sent to you. Do not contact anyone else for assistance other than listed in the e-mail. The help link is responded to Monday through Friday during normal business hours. So I f you waited until 10:00 to take your exam and the passcode expires at 11:00 you will have to retake the course. Do not put yourself in that position. The HMAC exam is online from a randomly generated test bank.  Chief Officers must provide you with a 2016 ERG to use while testing (this is to be an individual exam and not a group activity).  If you pass the exam the certificate will generate immediately for printing (just like BBP which also must be completed online, right now use 2017).  Submit copies to your Chief Officer.  If you fail the exam you will need to retake the class, there is no retest option.   

CPR :
?    Report to the station you registered for either Pikesville/Liberty Road unless otherwise directed.
?    A brief 5 min BBP overview will occur. Official BBP (currently the 2019edition) course work is to be completed using the BaCoFRA LMS site: http://baltimorecountyfra.org/inferno/training-classes/
?    Classroom will open 730am each day.
