    Default Fire Academy contact info?

    I work for a contract company and I'm not going to be going to fire academy for at least a year due to there being 4 or 5 people in front of me. I've talked to my superiors and I can get department sponsorship if I foot the bill. My next step is finding a fire academy with an upcoming class. I'm also wondering about the schedule, is there any academies that only hold class on certain shift days rather than mon-fri? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks
    Nick

    Edit: I guess my area would help. I'm in Naperville but willing to travel a reasonable distance.

    I believe Southern Kane has a part time academy, as well as a full time academy. Check it out.

    IFSI fire academy in Champaign, the next class is this fall but it is worth it if you can wait that long. I paid for it myself also, a bit on the expensive side at $2000+books but well worth it.

    Thanks guys I'm really interested in the part-time academy so hopefully I won't have to adjust my work schedule. I spoke to my boss and it doesn't look like she's going to be willing to work with my scheduling to send me to a full time academy for a long time. I'm going to call them a little bit later to find out more.
