OAFC Online Learning Series

The OAFC continues to evolve to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing world - and our online learning series is no different. Our priority, as always, is to provide our members with unique and invaluable experiences to help them in their roles as fire service and community leaders. 

The OAFC's mission is to lead innovation and excellence in public and life safety. We endeavour to promote excellence and innovation in the areas of education and training, legislation and public policy, fire, and membership services. 

The OAFC Online Learning Series is not a sales pitch, it won't promote any specific service, technology, or product - but is a series of educational sessions jam packed with information, tips, tricks, and tangible take-aways to educate and help you protect your community.  The Online Learning Series is provided free to our Individual Members but has a small fee for non-members. Some sessions will be restricted to OAFC membership only, while others will be open to the entire fire service.  Each individual learning session on the registration page will outline who is able to attend. 

Our Online Learning Series takes place via ZOOM.

If you have a topic that you would us to explore as part of our online learning series, please contact Katelyn Widdop, Events and Trade Show Manager by email at katelyn.widdop@oafc.on.ca.
