Fire In Texas would love to
assist you in obtaining your goal of becoming eligible to work in the exciting
field of career firefighting and Emergency Medical Services.
It is your option to attend
either the traditional twelve-week firefighter training classroom format where
the student attends class Monday through Friday for a twelve week period. During this time the student receives
instruction in the various subjects associated with firefighting. In addition the required hands-on skills are
practiced until mastered by each individual. The tuition for this course is
$2,400. Housing is not included in this
tuition, however, if the student requires housing, you can contract with a
local volunteer fire department where the student may house and ride out with
the volunteer department as an observer, while they attend the fire
If your work schedule,
family life, or other issues prevent you from attending a twelve-week on site
course, perhaps the online format of training will better fit your needs. In this type of training the student enrolls
in the course and has twelve weeks to work through the self-paced online
presentations, practice tests, assessment tests, and associated course work
from their home. At the conclusion of
the twelve week self-paced online portion of training the student attends a
fourteen (14) day hands-on skills' session in which the online material is
reviewed and all of the skills related to being a firefighters are practiced
until mastered. On the final day of the
session, the Texas Commission on Fire Protection State Examination will be
administered. The tuition for this course is $1,900. Housing is included in the tuition. The online students will stay at the Lead
instructor’s home which is in a bunk house arrangement during the fourteen day
session. In the evenings after class has concluded the students may fish for
large mouth bass or channel catfish from the two acre pond in the front yard of
the home or travel a couple miles south to fish in famous Lake Fork.
Regardless of which format
fits your needs, if you are coming from out-of-state or Canada, our tuition
does include our staff members picking you up at DFW airport or Love Field and
transporting you to our facility in Sulphur Springs, Texas. Of course at the conclusion of your training
we will also see that you are returned to the airport for your return flight.
In addition to the
firefighter certification training previously discussed, we also offer
Emergency Medical Technician training in both the on site and online
formats. Tuition for either of these
courses is $900 and that does not include housing.
If you already have your
firefighter certification and are looking to obtain additional Texas Commission
on Fire Protection certifications, we also offer Driver/Operator, Fire
Investigator, Fire Inspector, Fire Officer I and II, as well as Fire Instructor
I, II, and III.
