Remote Learning Students  

If you are a remote participant in the Fire Safety program you will use our state-of-the-art interactive instruction facility called the Live-Link. This remote learning environment is enabled through the use of smart boards and multi-point interactive video conferencing.

The Live-Link technology provides an immersive, real-time experience where students seamlessly participate with the instructor and others in the class as if they were in the same location.

  • If you miss a class, you will have the opportunity to watch a recorded session of the class and email questions to the instructor.

When using the E5 Live System the minimum requirements to ensure the quality of the experience are:

  • Up to date computer or laptop with 1GB video card and current drivers
  • Wired network connection with a minimum 1Mbps to 2 Mbps upload speed
  • Web camera, microphone, speakers or headphones
  • Microsoft Windows OS or current Mac OS (Linux is not supported at this time)
  • The Link software is compatible with H323 or SIP standard systems (not Skype).
