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.
Online instructor-led courses are scheduled offerings that you must apply for.
Our online instructor-led courses require a firm commitment from each student. Students who do not satisfactorily complete all course requirements will not receive a passing score. This will result in possible sanctions for up to 12 months acceptance or placement in all future NFA course offerings. Review the NFA policy guide PDF
The NETC Admissions Office will email you an acceptance confirmation for your course offering. NFA Online will then send you an email with your unique course link and instructions on how to enroll in the course.
