Fire Academy Training Schedule

*UPDATE 9/2/20: Upon arrival at the Fire Academy, all students will now be required to report to the auditorium entrance at a specific time for a temperature scan prior to each class session. Check-in times will be staggered to minimize the number of individuals occupying common spaces at any given moment. Students will be notified of their assigned time via email prior to the first morning or evening of class. When registering, prospective students should consider that they will need to arrive at the Fire Academy several minutes earlier than the start time listed on the training schedule.

All classes are dependent upon Federal, State, County, and PA State Fire Academy COVID-19 restrictions and are subject to change.*
