Thank you for your interest in Wichita HOT! We offer two types of tickets to this event:
If you are planning on attending hands-on-training, we strongly recommend hydrating ahead of time and showing up well rested. Many of the classes will include live fire exercises and scenarios which are physically strenuous. All participants in hands-on-training must submit a Signed Live Release Form during check-in. Details about specific classes can be found in their descriptions including PPE requirements and class locations.
Registration for Wichita HOT 2018 starts April 7th at 1200hrs. Online registration for all Hands-On-Training classes will close on September 23rd. You can register for Breakout Lectures in-person the morning of the 22nd unless sold out.
If the class you want is full, please complete this Waiting List Request. You may submit a request even if you already have another ticket purchased. You may not hold a spot for anyone other than yourself. We will offer vacated spots based on the order in which the requests were received. If we are unable to reach you by phone or email once a spot is free, we will move on the the next person.
Members of the IAFF Local 135 can seek reimbursement for their Wichita HOT tuition. Training Reimbursement Forms can be found at the Union Hall. Be sure to provide a copy of your receipt with the completed form. This counts towards your yearly training allowance.
Kansas firefighters may also seek reimbursement from the Kansas State Firefighters Association for their training fees. Your sponsoring department must be a member of the KSFFA in good standing. The form you need to submit can be found below.
If you are registering a large group of students for 'Hands-On-Training' classes, we offer a discounted rate. This discount does not apply to 'Lecture Only' tickets. If you are signing your group up through Eventbrite, please select the appropriate discount when purchasing tickets. IMPORTANT: To qualify for the discount, all tickets must be purchased in a single order for the correct number of students. If you select a discount code but do not meet the required number of students indicated for that code, your order will be cancelled and you'll lose your spot.
