What is FD Trainer?
FD Trainer is a unique application designed for firefighters and those who train in a similar fashion. Firefighters and other public safety personnel understand how essential training is and how it can affect the end results of any emergency situation. Timing these scenarios during training is vital given the fact that conditions in an emergency scene can change in fractions of a second. FD Trainer gives you the ability to create a custom list of benchmarks based on the specific training you want to complete and lets you view a detailed summary that you can share. Then compare your progress as you continue training in the future.

Why do I need a user name and password to access FD Trainer?
Soon FD Trainer will be incorporating the ability for you to share your custom created drills with other FD Trainer users, this will be made much easier with this functionality already in place. If it feels like a bit of a drag to have to create yet another username to remember you can just use your email address as your username. If you like, FD Trainer can also keep you up to date on any new changes to FD Trainer. We will NEVER SPAM, EVER!
Why not have a large list of built in drills?
We have added 5 popular drills for you to access and offer the ability to edit those as necessary. FD Trainer understands that every department works under different guidelines. Although there are very similar drills we are familiar with as firefighters, our departments have different ways they want the job done.
Will there be other pre-loaded drills available?
Yes. For now we want you to get familiar with FD Trainer and the many uses it has. Creating custom drills will also help you think about important benchmarks you'd like you and your crew to hit during training. We will be compiling everyones favorite drills, and soon we will choose more pre-loaded drills for everyone to load.

Why is FD Trainer only available in iOS and not Android?

The iPhone (Apple) platform is one that we were most familiar with at the beginning of this venture, but be sure we are already in the works with planning an Android release. If you are an Android user, make to so contact us and let us know. We'll put you on the list and you'll be amongst the first to hear about FD Trainer for Android!
