National Fire Academy (NFA) online instructor-led courses give participants the opportunity to interact with classmates and deliberate on the topics being taught. An NFA instructor facilitates the learning process and provides valuable feedback.
These courses range from 4 to 6 weeks in length. You are required to complete weekly assignments and papers, participate in class discussions online, and read various articles as the instructor assigns them. While most courses are conducted asynchronously, some courses may contain synchronous components.
We will send you an email with your course hyperlink and sign-in instructions.
In addition to online instructor-led courses, the NFA has online options for many of our on-campus courses. These options may include pre-course work, final exam, daily reading and posting, student feedback and reading assignments, and other homework. Your welcome package for the course will tell you how to participate.
