Flexible Delivery

Removing barriers to delivery is a consistent theme in our curriculum. Since the training center first opened, students have had the opportunity to immerse themselves with hands-on training. Courses are offered during the day, at night, or online making education possible for those first responders' who might not be able to attend otherwise.

Expanded Access

We strive to expand access to education through innovative pathways. We are an early pioneer in online education for first responders' and take pride in the quality of our coursework. Whether you learn best through interactive software, one-on-one virtual sessions, or just need your recurrent training, we have the solution for your department! Our student base is more diverse than ever before, and we continue to look for new pathways to make aircraft rescue fire fighting courses more affordable and accessible than ever before.
