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.

Check out the National Fire Academy’s site for more opportunities on weekends and during the week with 6 and 10-day programs!

Need to see what training you have done through FEMA online?

FEMA now has a self-service student portal that allows students to view IS course completions through the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) and print certificates, as well as providing functionality to request official transcripts from the Independent Study Program office. This is new, in lieu of sending in a form for the request. This will show all the online FEMA courses you have done, including some of those that may be required for our classes.

Additional FEMA/National Fire Academy Training

You can take other self-study courses online through FEMA through their National Fire Academy Online page. This training is more Fire, Rescue, and EMS specific, with many leadership and wildland firefighter courses also available.
