The Certification Bureau at the Mississippi Fire Academy proudly serves the firefighters from across Mississippi by delivering NFPA-based courses and valuable hands-on training to emergency responders. The programs are built around the standards and almost all of them hold IFSAC and Pro-Board accreditation.
For 2015, the instructional staff will deliver six NFPA 1001 basic courses that will consist of the seven week format delivery method. This format was started in 2014 under the 2012 NFPA 1001 standard. This intense seven week program will produce firefighters with the skills and characteristics to serve their communities with the highest regard to emergency response.
The Mississippi Fire Academy has always prided itself on offering courses with high academic standards. Programs such as fire officer, fire instructor, fire investigator and fire inspector will require the student to perform very well in the classroom in order to be successful. These courses are academic-intensive deliveries designed to stretch the mind and thought process of the student.
Also, if a department plans on conducting a field delivery program, we ask that the responsible officer ensure that items such as field request forms and roll sheets are turned in to the Academy as soon as possible. This will allow us to better schedule test dates on your desired days.
The Certification Staff looks forward to seeing you. If we an be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
