If you are scheduled for a roof prop drill this year.
You can only send 12 people to a vent prop drill. Please do not bring more
This is to ensure everyone attending gets to do cuts
The prop is not designed to accommodate too many at one time
We allow you to add other evolutions in case we get to them or can do them simultaneously
With a minimum amount of people, we should be able to cover both
Thank you for your cooperation
Be reminded also -- 6 sheets of 4' x 8' sheets of plywood must be provided by the Department

We send out confirmation emails as soon as we register students into a course (as well as a reminder one week from the start of the course). At this time, we are handling an excessive amount of requests. All course requests are registered chronologically based on fax or email time stamp (first come, first serve). 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

NEW CLASS ANNOUNCEMENTS
Use the Advanced Class Registration Form to register for the classes below:
Please do not send in applications for classes that are identified as being full. Students who walk in without being enrolled will have to leave. This is due to a limited number of seats and limited student manuals, as well as the need to maintain specific teacher-student ratios.
Be advised: Please do not call to confirm your registration in a course. The Academy will send out a confirmation email one week prior to the scheduled course start date. If you do not receive an email one week prior, please call us to confirm. Thanks
