    Default Questions about Viriginia's Tide Water Regional Fire Academy

    Hey all,
    For anyone who went through the Tide Water Regional Fire Academy in Virigina, Do you know how many hours is each class of the Firefighter 1 and Firefighter 2 certifications? And are they Pro Board certifications? Any help would be great! Thanks.

    I'm not a TRFA graduate, but I am an instructor for the Virginia Department of Fire Programs. The Firefighter I & II programs (combined, and including the required HazMat Ops class) are approximately 220 hours (depending on the text & curriculum used). The classes are tested by the VDFP, therefore, they're also ProBoard certified.

    If you're not familiar with it, an actual TRFA class is about 7 months long.
