Class Vacancies and a New Online NFA Course


The National Fire Academy is recruiting students to help pilot-test two new courses:

  • Code Administration Fundamentals is an online instructor-mediated course with a discussion board and self-study. Examining the underlying principles involved in the building and fire code administrative provisions, students can analyze the legal authorities, responsibilities, and permissions needed to enforce the codes in their jurisdictions.
  • The New Fire Chief II: Administrative Issues 2-day course will be pilot tested on September 14 -15. The course goal is to provide students the managerial, administrative, and leadership skills and awareness necessary for recently appointed or elected Chiefs to meet their new obligations.

In addition, the Hot Topics Research for EMS course has immediate openings for the August 11-16 offering. Students will bring a topic important to their agency/community to base the research on and will construct a program proposal, begin the research process, and present a project status briefing.

Students interested in any of these courses must complete the General Admission Application, available on the NFA web site.
