VLCT PACIF is pleased to offer its members access to a selection of online safety and human resources courses through its partnership with FirstNet Learning. The courses, which generally take from 30 to 60 minutes to complete, can be taken by members' employees at whatever time and location is convenient. If necessary, the student can even log off in the middle of a course and resume it later.

Courses are bundled into seven job-based Workplace Colleges: Police, Fire and EMS, Public Works, Parks & Rec, Water and Wastewater, Admin & Office, and Solid Waste. Each college includes several core courses (such as Stress Management and New Employee Orientation) and others that are specific to the job category (such as Arc Flash Awareness for Public Works). Employees select the appropriate college when they create their user account. Later, they click on that college to log in and access their assigned courses and completion records.

These online courses are a great supplement to in-person trainings. Please note that PACIF Online U courses can be taken on any computer that has internet access and is equipped with Flash and Java. Please contact your IT administrator to install these programs, which are available from and, respectively.
