Welcome to the Westchester County Department of Emergency Services Training Division.  You may register for two types of training: County and/or New York State classes. Each has its own registration application. See the appropriate section below.  Enjoy your learning journey.

County classes
This category includes all courses developed and delivered by Westchester County personnel, or outside agencies, primarily for Fire, Communications, and EMS audiences, but for other groups as well.

Registration for County classes is accomplished through the Westchester County Training Tracking Application (TTA). This category does not include any course offered by the NYS Department of Homeland Security, whether Fire, OEM, or other disciplines under DHSES. Registration for those classes is accomplished through the NYS DHSES Learning Management System (LMS).

Even if not logged on, you will be able to view available courses and access relevant Training Announcement Letters to see the entire schedule for a class. Directions for establishing a User Account are also displayed. Once logged on, you can request enrollment in a class by clicking the ENROLL icon to the right of the screen.

Register for county classes.

New York State DHSES classes
This category includes all courses developed by the New York State Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (NYS DHSES), and are delivered by NYS personnel and/or County personnel working as agents of NYS.  Such classes as Firefighter I, Firefighter Survival, Emergency Vehicle Operations, Firefighter II, etc. 

Registration for NYS classes is accomplished through the NYS LMS system. You must have a User Account set up before being able to register for any of these courses. Follow the instructions on obtaining a User Account on the LMS landing page.

Before you register for NYS courses, make sure that you have obtained a copy of the Training Announcement Letter. While these are not currently available on the LMS site, you can click on any of the links below to bring up the relevant Training Announcement Letter. Before registering for a class, make sure that you have read and understood the schedule of classes (dates and times shown are all in-person sessions) and are able to commit to them. If you cannot, then you should wait for a future class offering that better suits your schedule.
