Online Fire Training
In today’s demanding world, not everyone has the resources to commit to a time intensive, traditional face-to-face fire training academy. However, we believe you shouldn’t compromise quality for the flexibility that comes with learning online. If you are just getting into the fire service or have been working as a volunteer firefighter and seeking fire certification, FireFighter Academy is designed for YOU!
Unlike other online firefighter courses, Firefighter Academy gives you a highly interactive experience that goes far beyond turning pages. As you walk through the comprehensive training environment, you will encounter fire ground scenarios such as how to properly don your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or how to vent a roof. You will also be given decision-making opportunities to choose the correct option of completing a task.
What this means to you—the student—is that after completing the online portion of the course, you will have a solid knowledge base that will prepare you for the hands-on skills training you will receive at the renowned Brayton Fire Training Field in College Station, Texas.
Despite other online fire courses available, you need to make the best decision for your future firefighting career. Here’s what we have that the others don’t:
· Interactive scenarios
· Virtual firefighter props
· Live chat capabilities for student interaction
· Video clips containing skills training demonstrations
· Resource rooms that provide important information about equipment, vehicles, etc.
· A virtual fire house tour
· Instructor interaction
And much, much more!
Start your firefighter career today by enrolling with confidence that you are training with the absolute best the fire service has to offer!
After completing the online portion of Firefighter Academy, you will be able to enroll in the hands-on skills training with TEEX at Brayton Fire Training Field in College Station, Texas.
After successfully completing the hands-on fire training, you will be eligible to participate in Pro Board skills testing and written exams for National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1001, Standard for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, as well as NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents.
When you pass both skills testing and the written exam for each level, you could receive up to six Pro Board certifications and will be considered a certified firefighter.
