About our Firefighter Courses

Our firefighting courses are separated into two important portions. The online firefighter training will teach you important principles of dealing with fire, medical and other emergencies. Our curriculum is consistent with the standards of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The hands-on portion of the courses will give you practical skills and knowledge necessary to start your firefighting career. 

Course Testimonials

“I really enjoyed taking the Fire Academy. Boot Camp was the best time I ever had. Just one month after completion I was hired by the City of Perryton.”
— Jonathan Turney, Perryton, FD

“The instructors were all really passionate about their work. They were very effective at not only passing information to pass the course but also information on life really works on the fire ground and how to stay safe.”
— Eric Butler, Boot Camp 18

About our EMT Courses

Our EMT courses are similar in structure. You can complete your online EMT training at your own pace. After your studies have concluded, you can attend our hands-on training for EMTs. In both academic and practical portions of your medical technician training, we ensure that you receive top-rated instruction and essential information. We prepare our emergency medical technician candidates for a challenging but exciting career path, and we equip our prospective first responders with the tools they need to embark on these careers in their local communities.
