If you have not gotten an email confirmation, please wait one week before inquiring if you have been accepted into a course.


Regarding FF1 applications:
You do NOT need to make an appointment to drop it off; you just need to call before you come to verify someone is in the building. When you get here, if the doors are locked, please call the office and we will let you in. Sorry for the confusion. It's just that we need to check them for completion and accuracy before we accept them. Thanks

We are going to use a more regional approach to this training.  We will be announcing locations, dates, and times where the training will be held soon.   

We will also require departments to choose a day that their department will be coming to the training.  These sessions will be held in area schools along with several at the Academy. 

We will offer both weekend (Saturday) and weekday classes. 
Please do not send in any individual departments requests for "home schooling". Once announced, departments can send in an advanced class request to attend a specific training site

 If a department has access to a large auditorium and would like to host a regional  class, please let us know and we will take it under consideration. 

Any questions can be directed to the Academy.
