Basic Structural Firefighting

our program

If extinguishing fires and rescuing people sounds rewarding, a career as a Firefighter could be for you. Firefighters train hard in an effort to save the lives and property of the citizens they are sworn to serve. Firefighters respond to all types of emergencies such as fires, hazardous materials, trauma, medical, and rescue calls.  We have multiple course options to choose from.

Day Classes
Get certified in 12 weeks and gain real hands-on experience. Taught by veteran Firefighters, our program prepares you for real-life challenges using current technology and techniques. This includes realistic emergency simulations using actual firefighting equipment, allowing you to experience what it means to be an Firefighter before achieving certification. We also provide testing assistance for those who need a little extra help.

Our program is one of the fastest in the state.  This program runs Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm for 12 weeks straight.  These 12 weeks include classroom lectures, hands-on skills review, live fire training, and state test preparation.

Evening Classes
We also have an evening class option that take place over 17 weeks Monday-Friday from 6pm-10pm and Saturday’s from 8am-5pm.

Hybrid Classes
Lastly we offer a hybrid option, allowing students to take our program over the course of 10 weeks online, with the last 12 days being in person for skills training / testing and live fire training.
