Announcement Regarding Safety Unlimited Classroom Training (REVISED 3-20-20)
In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, all but a few critical employees are working from home. Meanwhile, we’ve had many inquiries about whether we are still providing classroom training. We will continue holding some mission-critical, in-person classes, primarily training for emergency responders and those in the medical field. Our instructors will continue traveling to some locations by vehicle, not by air. We have also implemented rigorous cleaning and social distancing practices in our classroom training: wiping down all surfaces and equipment before and after use and keeping classes small enough to allow the recommended 6-foot distance between students. Any student showing signs of illness should NOT attend our training.

What is VILT?

This is a newer distributive learning (DL) technology that allows an instructor to present information by means of a lecture when his/her slides and photos are available for students, but whose students are only present in a virtual classroom. Students login to the classroom and are able to view and hear the presentation. They interact with the instructor by either voice and web cam video or by typing questions in a fashion similar to a chat room. All of the pieces of the activity occur simultaneously.

What is F5 Training?

VILT activities are accepted as traditional live activities by the NREMT and many states because they provide synchronous interaction between students and instructor, the CE provider is able to verify student attendance throughout the activity, and each topic requires that the student make a satisfactory score on the summative exam for each topic presented. The course number for a VILT activity contains an F5 designation.

Please check with your State EMS Agency for more details.

Other F Codes Include:

  • F1: Live In-Person One Time Event
  • F2: Live In-Person Multiple Event
  • F3: Online Distributive Learning
  • F4: Denotes a course wherein the user/student interacts with the activity in such a way that their actions and choices dictate the direction of the activity or case.
  • F5: Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)
