    This is the school I am going to right now for my FF I & II. I am in the adult ed program, but they offer a high school program where the kids in high school go there last 2 years of high school. Upon graduation they will have completed the FF I & II course and their EMT-B course. All they will have to do is take the tests for each. After reading your post again im not quite sure what you are asking?

    edit: here is the high school course description:


    First year curriculum

    * Basic care for ill and injured
    * CPR

    Fire Fighter - Foundation Curriculum

    Second year curriculum

    * Professional firefighter
    * EMT-B Certification Ė National Registry of EMTíS.

    * The State of Ohio, Department of Public Safety, Div. of Emergency Medical Services, issues certificates upon successful completion of these state examinations.

    Career Center benefits

    * Job shadowing with Central Ohio Fire Departments and EMS crews
    * Certification training with up-to-date certified equipment
    * Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take State Certification exams for firefighter I, II and EMT-B.


    Career opportunities

    Thanks for the response, I was indeed looking for something of this nature.. Although the problem is that I live in North Carolina, although I am willing to move and live somewhere else to go to school.

    Thumbs up Arkansas Fire Academy

    The Arkansas Fire Academy has a program for international and out-of-state students. Tuition for the eight-week standards class is currently $5,000. That program will give you IFSAC certification as a Firefighter II as well as Hazardous Materials Awareness & Ops and Driver/Operator certification. They have a four-week EMT school before many of their standards classes. I'm sure you could gain enrollment in it for just a few more dollars. (Graduates take the NREMT-B exam.) That way, twelve weeks would give you a lot of what you need to get started.

    Austin should start hiring again in a few months. They'll pay you somewhere around 40,000 while they put you threw the academy. You'll come out fire fighter certified and an EMT B.

    Texas might not be your bag, but if you're interested go to the Austin recruiting web site. You should be able to goggle it.

    You can always get in touch with me and I'll help you out.

    Good Luck

    Its not really a campus type school. Its more like a tech-prep school. They serve high school students but they offer adult ed courses as well. The high school fire service program is the 2 year program. The adult education is a little different.

    They offer both FF I & II and EMT-B classes but they arent consolidated like it is for high school. The FF I & II class is about 5 months long and I only have about a month left, my last day being December 21st. They also offer an adult ed EMT-B class that starts in January but I am already an EMT-B so Im not taking that class.

    As far as living on campus, its not the type of school that has dorms. Its just a regular school in Delaware county. You could always get an apartment or somthing if you wanted to I guess but Im sure you could probably find a school similar to this where you live. I live about 30 miles from the school so I have to drive there every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday until class is over.

    Im pretty sure most states have a state fire academy as well. If you could join a volunteer fire dept they will usually send you through at FFII class of some sort. Ohio has a state ran fire academy at www.ohiofireacademy.com but you have to be affiliated with a fire dept to go there. I live in city limits so im not in the district of any departments I can volunteer with so I have to go straight through go the paid career FF route, although I plan on volunteering when, if ever, i finally get to move out of my parents house.


    edit: after seeing that you are from colorado, I did a search and found a few schools in colorado that offer fire service courses.

    This school called Red Rocks Community College has what looks like a really good agenda for a fire protection school. If you look at pages 79 and 85 of this catalog if has the information for the EMT and fire classes they offer. You will need adobe acrobat viewer to see it. I hope this helps some, if not just do a google search for colorado fire schools.
