How can your training help you advance?

Many of the programs can be prerequisites or help prepare you for programs building on your training and education. Some courses offered by the NFA may also be eligible for college credits. Additional programs available through the NFA are the Managing Officer Program and the Executive Fire Officer Program. These courses help develop leadership skills for company level and senior officers.
