Recruit Academy

Firefighting is internationally known as an honorable and trusted profession for its sense of selflessness and efforts to help other people. Because of the dangers involved in the profession, and even in the training for it, proper training, physical ability and discipline are paramount. The FETA Recruit Fire Academy course is designed for entry-level firefighters and is taught under the same paramilitary chain of command used in today’s fire departments.
