The National Fire Academy (NFA) provides free, specialized training courses and advanced management programs for middle- and top-level fire officers, fire service instructors, technical professionals, and representatives from allied professions.
If you have substantial involvement in fire prevention and control, emergency medical services, or fire-related emergency management activities, we welcome you to apply. Our courses are delivered online, at our campus in Emmitsburg, Maryland, and throughout the nation in cooperation with state and local fire training organizations and local colleges and universities.
