The State Fire Training User Portal

The State Fire Training User Portal is a comprehensive system that serves as a central training and certification repository for all participants in the California Fire Service Training and Education System (CFSTES) or the Fire Service Training and Education Program (FSTEP).

Portal accounts may be activated for users who have a valid SFT ID number (SFT ID numbers must include the hyphen, ex. XXXX-XXXX). Click onto the Sign Up link on the left. If you do not remember your SFT ID use the Retrieve Your SFT ID link located on the left side of this page. A valid email address on file is required before an SFT ID can be retrieved using this method. If this method is not successful, you may utilize the Online Legacy SFT ID Look Up website which will ask you for your name and last four SSN before displaying your SFT ID.

For information on the content found within your portal account and how to navigate it, consider reviewing the Records Management Online User Portal Information Bulletin. Additionally, be advised that the User Portal, the Testing Portal and supporting resources such as the Training Catalog, etc. may be unavailable to routinely scheduled maintenance. Learn about scheduled outages by reviewing the Acadis Portal Maintenance Information Bulletin.
