Fire Fighter (NFPA Standard 1001) Program


Looking for the competitive edge? Get it through our Firefighter Training Program (FFTP).

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 1001 - Firefighter Professional Qualifications is widely endorsed by departments as a necessary credential for new hires. Our program's curriculum exceeds the requirements set out by the NFPA, and includes more practice runs and other hands-on skill building.

The Firefighter Training Program is offered several times a year in an on-site full-time 12-week block or in a blended format with 12 weeks of theory online and 5 weeks of on-site practical training. This program forms the prerequisite for entry to other NFPA professional standards training and is both IFSAC and ProBoard accredited.

Application for ProBoard and IFSAC certificates can be made through the Office of the Fire Commissioner.

Certification requires successful completion of Standard First Aid and CPR "C" or equivalent and NFPA 472 Awareness and Operations.

See the full-time 12-week firefighter training program for more details, and or contact the fire & emergency services enrollment specialist at 1 800 661 6490 ext. 8527.

If attending school full-time is not an option for you, you can complete your 1001 designation by taking the training part-time (one course at a time).  For information about completing the course on a part-time basis contact the Office of the Registrar at 1 800 661 6490 ext. 8633 or view our training schedule.
