Use FRS v2.0

EDGE FRS 2.0 is a versatile training tool, however, in order to access EDGE, you need to either have an approved account or be invited into a training session by an approved account holder.  The steps to access an EDGE training session vary depending on whether you are a trainee or the person organizing the training session. 

If you are a trainee:

  • You should receive a date and time for your training session as well as a username and password for the training session from the training session organizer.  In addition, you should receive information from them on how to obtain the EDGE client software and user documentation
  • Prior to the training session, install the EDGE client on your computer and make sure you are able to launch the EDGE client
  • At the appointed time of the training, launch the EDGE client and log in using the information previously provided by the organizer and join the training session.

If you are a training session organizer:

  • Once you have an approved account, use the information provided to you in your account approval notification email to access the EDGE FRS 2.0 Training web site.
  • Create a session for the desired date and time and you will be provided a 6 character user name to be used for that session.
  • Create a password for the training session that will be associated with the 6 character user name from the previous step
  • Download the EDGE client software, Effective Use Guide, Participant Guide, and other documentation, as needed
  • Provide the EDGE client software and the desired documentation to trainees along with the session login information (6 character user name and the password you created) to all trainees
  • At the appointed time, the EDGE servers will start the training session automatically or you can start it earlier by logging into the EDGE Training Web site and clicking the Start button for that session
  • At the appointed end time, the EDGE servers will automatically stop the session and shut down.
