    There's one in Salt Lake City, UT. I believe it's put on by SLCFD.

    I would call the closest airport with a fire department. I would be willing to bet that they can help you get some training or set you up with someone that can.

    Down here, the NKY/Cincinnati Int'l Airport does a big class annually I think.

    I believe Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake Washington has one in conjunction with the port authority of that airport. Found it when I was looking at the aircraft side of the job.

    University of Nevada Reno Fire Science Academy offers ARFF training but it is directed more towards the use of handlines and rescue instead of using the ARFF vehicles.

    Salt Lake City Airport is the other training facility that was mentioned earlier.

    Yep, everything that Dickey said.
