Men and women who want to become firefighters are invited to submit an application for the MCC Spring 2017 Fire Academy.  Space is limited to 15 recruits and the application deadline is October 28.

Mohave Community College’s Fire Science Program partners with local fire stations to offer the best education and training in the region.   Completion of the fire academy is a requirement for anyone who wants to become a firefighter.

The MCC Fire Academy is a 272-hour course providing recruits training in basic firefighting concepts including fire behavior, rescue procedures, command and control, fire suppression, hazardous materials, and firefighter safety.

Recruits who successfully complete the Spring 2017 Fire Academy will receive 12 college credits, establishing a foundation for an Associate of Science Degree in Fire Science.

This is a 16 week academy.  The course is scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm-10pm, and all day Saturdays from 6am-5pm.   Exact dates for the Spring Fire Academy will be determined later.

This program has a strict attendance policy and students are only allowed 24 hours of excused absences during the course of the program.

Again, the deadline for the application period is October 28.
