Our program's curriculum exceeds the requirements set out by the NFPA, and includes more practice runs and other hands-on skill building.

The Firefighter Training Program is offered several times a year in a full-time 12-week block. and forms the prerequisite for entry to other NFPA professional standards training and is both IFSAC and ProBoard accredited.

Application for ProBoard and IFSAC certificates can be made through the Office of the Fire Commissioner.

Certification requires successful completion of Standard First Aid and CPR "C" or equivalent and NFPA 472 Awareness and Operations.
