NFA on-campus training suspended until May 10

National Fire Academy training at the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) is suspended for an eight-week period (March 14 – May 10). Training is suspended due to the ongoing need for students to commit to their families and communities. If you were scheduled for a class at NETC, our Admissions Office will contact you to reschedule.

Off-campus students: please contact your state fire training agency for information about NFA classes delivered in your state.
