National Fire Academy Off-Campus Deliveries

The Off-Campus Delivery Program offers the same 1-2 week courses normally taught at the U.S. Fire Administration's National Fire Academy facility located in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The NFA's Training Resources and Data Exchange (TRADE) which operates within the 10 Federal Government Regions, provides the structure through which regional deliveries are offered. The TRADE network comprises the training and education administrators of the 50 state fire training systems, and more than 150 of the largest local fire departments throughout the United States.

Students who participate in Off-Campus Deliveries have the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas and information with colleagues from throughout their region in a informal setting outside the classroom. This program, along with other resources of the National Fire Academy, insure a totally successful learning experience while keeping the time commitment and costs, to an absolute minimum.
