    I'm a Junior FF from Florida & I think this is great. How many years has this academy been conducted & like the person before me asked, how much are the tuition costs?

    Thanks for your interest.

    This will be the third year we have conducted the academy at Hocking College. We started the concept of an academy at my department when we started our Explorer Post during the summer of 2001. We called it "Boot Camp." In 2002, we opened it up to other Explorer Posts and were overwhelmed with the response. Seeing that there was a demand for such a program, we hooked up with the Ohio State Firefighters Association and hosted the first Ohio Youth Academy in 2004 with 16 young men & women attending. This year, we had over 60 students.

    The tuition this year was $275 and includes program, room & board, recreational activities and 1 hour of college credit. Although the committee hasn't made it official yet, we do not anticipate an increase in the tuition next year. I'll post again in this forum when the tuition price is set and the registration materials are available.

    Yes, that sentence indicates that the academy tuition covers room, board and 1 college credit hour. College credit is NOT required in order to come to the academy.

    Of course! We normally take Ohio registrations until June, then open it up to out-of-state students on a first come, first served basis until all available space is gone. So far, we haven't had to turn anyone away due to lack of space. That said, we experienced a 400% increase in registrations from last year to this. If that happens again next year, we may have a waiting list. Hopefully, we'll be able to accomodate everyone who wants to come.

    Our program is based on Firefighter I and First Responder curriculum, however because of the age of our students, we are unable to offer certifications that are recognized by any state. Our program is designed to provide knowledge and skills that will give our students a "head start" when they go on to begin their "official" training later in life.

    Also, I should mention that our program is designed around a 4-year cycle, so that a student could come every year from age 14 - 18 and receive a different, more advanced course of study each year.

    To learn more about Hocking College (where we have the academy each year) visit www.hocking.edu. To take a virtual tour of the campus, visit http://www.hocking.edu/VCT2/index.htm.

    To learn more about the Ohio State Firefighters Association (our sponsoring organization), visit www.ohiofirefighters.org. By the way, this is where the registration materials will be available for download, once they're ready.

    To be honest, if you've participated in FF I & II training, you probably won't see anything new at our academy on the fire side. Have you had any EMS?

    Even in you've had all the training before, you might just enjoy meeting and training with other cadets, explorers and juniors from all over Ohio and several other states, getting away from your folks and experiencing college dorm life for a week.

    I'll e-mail you a copy of the curriculum when I get back to the office so you can see what's covered each year of the program.

    Hocking College is located in Nelsonville, Ohio. It's a small town down in "the hills" between Logan and Athens. Nelsonville is probably best known for being the home of Rocky Boots. There is an outlet store located at the old factory (the boots are mostly made in Mexico these days) and academy students receive discount coupons they can use anytime.
