    Default San Pasqual Academy/ Advice

    Has anyone here attended the San Pasqual Fire Academy? If so what was your experience there? I'm really interested in attending, I just wish that I had someone else's opinion.

    I recently decided to look into becoming a firefighter and everything I read and everyone I talk to makes me want to do it even more. I've been weight training and recently started running and working on my cardio. After I finish the academy I was planning on taking an EMT certification course at the local college in the fall. Besides this, I need some advise, any advice. I'm anxious to learn and anything would be of value to me.

    I attended the academy and all I can say is that the PT is gnarly. There are a lot of hills in that area and just be prepared for getting your *****$$ handed to you everyday. Other than that it is a lot of work but will pay off for a great job in the future.

    Didn't attend but this academy isn't highly regarded in the area. It'll get you a cert though.

    I went there and it paid off for me. Few months later and I got on with one of the best departments in the state.
