Process Change for Agency Courses
Course Manual Stickers:
Previously, course manual numbers were included on stickers. This is to advise all APCO agency instructors that the course manuals no longer include stickers – all course manual numbers are now sent by email after orders are approved.
The numbers can be easily copied and pasted when filing affidavits of training online. Please ensure you enter the full number, including the three-letter prefix.
Filing Affidavits Online:
Affidavits of Training may now be filed online. Online submission ensures your students' certifications are processed faster than if the affidavit is submitted by mail. Please note that effective January 1, 2024, only Affidavits of Training submitted online will be accepted.
APCO will no longer accept submissions by mail. If you have questions, please contact email@example.com
FSC 3rd Edition:
Please be advised that effective April 1, 2023, APCO introduced the FSC 3rd Edition, which includes the new FSC 3rd Edition course manual. FSC 3 Student and Instructor update courses will be available until March 31, 2024. FSC 2nd Edition manuals are no longer available for purchase. FSC 2nd Edition affidavits are no longer being accepted effective October 1, 2023. *This does not apply to Fire Service Communications 2nd Edition Canada (FSCC).
