Professional Firefighter Academy

Offered by the Training Center for Fire and Hazardous Materials, part of UA's College of Applied Science and Technology

The Professional Firefighter Academy will give you the training you need to begin your career as an emergency service professional. Students receive training from some of the top fire instructors in the state, and they learn how to perform in the safest, efficient and effective ways possible while working on an emergency scene. Finally, upon successful completion of the academy and receiving Ohio certification as a Firefighter II, our students earn college credit toward a fire-protection associate degree.
