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.
We continue to evaluate the local and national situation and will provide regular updates. On-campus students will be notified in advance concerning the status of their on-campus course offering. Off-campus students: please contact your state fire training agency for information about NFA classes delivered in your state.
