The National Fire Academy (NFA) works to enhance the ability of fire and emergency services and allied professionals to deal more effectively with fire and related emergencies. Free training courses and programs are delivered at our campus in Emmitsburg, Maryland, online and throughout the nation.
NFA on-campus training resumed April 12. We have notified all accepted on-campus students about the status of their courses.
The health, wellness and safety of our students, instructors and staff is most important. We evaluate the national COVID-19 situation and guidance from Maryland and Pennsylvania weekly. Based on local and national COVID-19 conditions, training may be cancelled as late as the Thursday prior to your scheduled arrival on campus.
This video provides NFA students with information about the National Emergency Training Center campus, including amenities, security protocols, policies, and student services. Please watch if you were recently accepted for a course.
If you’re a prospective student who hasn’t trained with us, we invite you to watch the video to learn more about our campus and the NFA training experience!
