SMART Fire Academy
The SMART Fire Academy is a division of Training Division that provides hands-on firefighting skills locally in select cities to help students while taking the Training Division Basic Fire Academy program. Think of it as an upgrade to the already incredible Training Division Firefighter program. Students wanting to complete more hands-on training from local instructors while completing their online components find the SMART Fire Academy program very helpful. If you would like to make a positive change in your life, start the journey of becoming a firefighter or emergency medical responder through one of our SMART Fire Academy programs near you.
Different fire departments require different certifications to apply. The starting point, & most common, is known as the NFPA 1001: Firefighter Level I&II course which when combined with an emergency medical course allows students to obtain their IFSAC seals. IFSAC is the International Fire Service Accreditation Congress. IFSAC seals for our successful students are currently issued by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection and are recognized throughout Canada, the USA, Central America, and some European countries.
The SMART Fire Academy: NFPA 1001: Firefighter Level I&II courses are currently being offered in the following cities with more locations being added on a regular basis:
- Surrey, BC, Canada
- Kelowna, BC, Canada
- Calgary, AB, Canada
- Winnipeg, MB, Canada
- Toronto, ON, Canada
- Fort Worth, TX, USA
- Indianapolis, IN, USA
For students applying with departments that require the NFPA 1002: Pump Operations course such as the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service ( WFPS ), we currently offer that program there as well.
Finally, for students in Manitoba, Canada, we offer the EMR course needed to apply for provincial EMT Licensing through MB Health. Students take this course to be eligible to apply to the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service as a firefighter or 911 communications officer, to work with ambulance services, or prior to more advanced paramedic training.
