Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started using Fisdap?

The first step to getting started is to set up an account for your organization or yourself. Give us a call or send us an email to express your interest and we can assist you in getting set up right away.  As an instructor, your account is free and there are no obligations to purchase!

What are your payment options?

There are two ways to purchase accounts. Schools can order accounts for students, and the school can either pay up front with a credit card or choose to be invoiced.
Alternatively, schools can get a uniquely configured product code to give to their students so that they may purchase their own accounts directly from Fisdap.
Fisdap accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Sorry, but we do not accept American Express.

Does it cost money for instructors to use Fisdap?

Nope! Administrator accounts are free! You can create instructor-level accounts for as many people as you need, including preceptors whom you want to view the schedule. Don’t confuse this with Preceptor Training, a $25 educational account that prepares preceptors for the job of role model.

What are your system requirements?

Fisdap makes web-based software, meaning so long as you can connect your computer to the Internet, you can log in to the Fisdap website. No downloading, no syncing!
The web browsers we support and recommend are: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Do you have a mobile app?

Yes, Fisdap is proud to offer Fisdap Mobile for Skills Tracker, a version of Skills Tracker specially designed for smaller screens!  Any student or instructor using Skills Tracker can use the mobile site for free.

I’m a student whose school doesn’t use Fisdap. Which products can I use?

Most of Fisdap is designed to help educators and students coordinate and communicate together, but we do have one product just for students! Fisdap Study Tools is a test prep account available to EMT and paramedic students. Study Tools is a great independent resource that gives you access to a practice exam, practice quizzes, and more!

What does FISDAP stand for?

In 1997, the founders of FISDAP began a grant-funded research project to develop a system for tracking students’ field and clinical experiences.  The name of the grant was the Field Internship Student Data Acquisition Project (FISDAP). We later switched from FISDAP to Fisdap since it’s our name and brand now—and not just an acronym.
