Personal protective equipment is to be furnished by the student and includes an OSHA or ANSI approved helmet with chin strap (fire helmets okay), clean leather work gloves (firefighting gloves are not appropriate), durable work clothes (no tank tops or shorts), and hard-toed boots. Fire department turnout gear is not recommended except during inclement weather.
KU provides accommodations for certification candidates in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Documentation of the diagnosis from a qualified professional, and a request for accommodation, should be submitted in writing to the Kansas Fire & Rescue Training Institute Certification Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-804-8841 at least two weeks prior to the exam.
