Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Fire Training Research Center—DFW Airport, TX

The Fire Training Research Center (FTRC) for Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is a globally recognized fire training organization. The new training facility is intended to enhance the educational environment by creating a “high-tech classroom” of the future. The 10,000-SF, one-story facility includes a large training room that accommodates 60 people. It features a retractable partition that can divide the area into two smaller training rooms. Also included are six private offices, restrooms, break rooms, and communication and information technology systems to support training and connectivity with other airport systems. A virtual classroom platform (VCP) allows the FTRC to create online courses that can be completed remotely by either individuals or the fire department, allowing staff to train without being physically on-site. The VCP also provides a mechanism for FTRC staff and teachers to manage student interactions and help them complete the course requirements and assignments.
