The program is designed to provide the information and skills needed for modern firefighting and rescue through a variety of learning experiences and training scenarios.

The Recruit Firefighter Academy is a para-military program that is delivered over 18 weeks. Although all students interested in firefighting, volunteer or career are welcome, the Recruit Firefighter Training Academy is specifically designed to train recruit firefighters currently employed by departments and students who wish to pursue a career as a professional firefighter.

The next academy begins in August. For more information, visit or contact Nash Community College Director of Fire Services Joey Parks at 252-451-8480.
