The International Board for Certification Services and Management (IBFCSM) maintains a list of qualified, accredited courses for a variety of life safety and healthcare management trainings. Throughout the pandemic, Vantage Point has been the only provider of virtual certification prep course for Certified Emergency Disaster Professional Certification and Certified Healthcare Fire Safety Professional Certification.
Virtual prep courses differ from “online” training. Virtual training is similar to classroom instruction, where participants meet at determined times. Instructors provide lessons over a webinar or conference format and participants ask questions and participate through chat or with their own video and microphone.
Online instruction is asynchronous, meaning there are no set times for classes and assignments and exams, if any, are posted with consistent deadlines you complete on your schedule anytime before the deadline. This is what VPC offers.
Cumulatively, Vantage Point Consulting has conducted over 1,800 exercises and trainings in-person and online over the last decade.
