Fire Academy

The Firefighter I Academy (FIRE 793) is state-certified as a regional academy. Students who complete this training, and possess a valid, current Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification, can begin the process of testing for employment at fire departments.

The Firefighter I Academy meets on Monday and Wednesday evenings (1800 - 2200) and Saturdays (0800 - 1800) and some Sundays (0800 - 1800) for the entire semester.

The pre-requisite for the FFI Academy is six (6) units of Fire Technology coursework, with a grade of "C" or better.  Three (3) of those units must be from FIRE 715 - Principles of Emergency Services, the equivalent course from another Fire Technology program or at least one year of fire service experience in a fire suppression role.

Units from EMT courses do not count towards this pre-requisite.  While it is not required, it is recommended that students have a current EMT certificate.
