2011 SOUTHERN AREA ADVANCED FIRE AND AVIATION ACADEMY

± THE NOMINATION DEADLINE HAS EXPIRED ±

Welcome to the Southern Area Advanced Fire and Aviation Academy website. The purpose of the academy is to provide efficient delivery of upper level fire training in a two-week academy format. The prime objective is to maintain and enhance fire suppression, fire management, and all-hazard position qualifications and meet required agency certifications. The regional academy is an innovative effort responsive to building upper level staffing capacity and capability. This is an interagency effort including Department of Interior and Southern State Forestry agencies.

This academy will provide employees the opportunity to attend multiple sessions in a two-week period, accelerating their ability to obtain required training. The schedule includes 300- and 400-level courses in the areas of leadership, prescribed fire, suppression, and dispatch as well as others (i.e., ISUITE, WFDSS, Fire Effects Monitoring, Firefighter Retirement, COR/COTR Refresher, etc.).

We invite you to review the course schedule and course information to see how the academy can assist with your individual training needs. Also, we ask you to please review the Academy Policy Memo which outlines the procedures and guideline of the academy.
