In 2017, the Illinois Fire Service Institute set strategic goals to better direct our marketing efforts. This included launching a plan to rebrand our publications, streamline our print media materials and further enhance our electronic platforms. We are excited to debut the first step towards supporting this plan. The Illinois Fire Service Institute is pleased to release the 2018 Course Calendar.
The creation of the calendar is always an exciting process for our team. The collection of photos is only a fraction of the wonderful training images that we collect over the course of a year. The design process allows us to reflect on the quality programs and training that we offer and the IFSI team that is instrumental in our successes.
We are also very excited to debut a new, more functional layout. We still are showcasing a selection of courses available throughout the state. Please note that this calendar is not a complete list of our training offerings. Our training schedule is consistently updating as we add programs and services that meet the needs of first responders throughout the state. We ask you to visit our website on a frequent basis to see all of the training opportunities available throughout the year. Our dedicated class support team is currently in the process of adding over 300 training opportunities for 2018 to our online registration system. We anticipate this process being completed by December 1, 2017. Thank you for your patience as we prepare for another great training year.
Finally, we look forward to continuing to highlight the top quality training throughout the year on our social media channels. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube throughout 2018.
